Linnaeus is built on the principles of sustainability and environmental sensitivity
Integral to the operation of the estate is conservation of natural resources, orderly and economic use of land, and protection of native animals, plants and habitats. By implementing the guiding principles of self-reliance, reduction of harmful discharge into the environment, and conservation of biological diversity and ecological integrity, the estate is managed on ecologically sustainable development principles.
The estate aims to preserve the natural features of the site, restore habitat and wildlife corridors and implement ongoing coastal, wetland and environmental care programmes.
Linnaeus has dedicated environmental protection zones, and has established partner programmes with Coastcare, Landcare, and Land for Wildlife.
The estate harvests and treats its own water, maintains its own wastewater treatment plant and has implemented a total waste management system to reduce landfill.
