Marine stewardship fund

Stewardship represents our commitment to good environmental practice, sustainability, and taking the long-term view in managing the estate.

Over the past 15 years our Marine Stewardship Programme has invested over £10 million in community projects and scientific research to support and enhance our marine assets.

Introducing the new Crown Estate Stewardship Programme

We are expanding our stewardship work to encompass all Crown Estate business areas such as property in London’s West End, a substantial portfolio of retail parks and Windsor Great Park - one of the nation’s largest rural landholdings.

We are developing an enhanced stewardship strategy that will underline our commitment to good asset management and benefit our partners, stakeholders and the communities in which we work over the long term. The Crown Estate Stewardship Programme will continue to work closely with local and national organisations to create social, environmental and economic benefits.

The strategy will be implemented during 2015 and we will communicate more about the new approach later in the year.
