Whether your football club are reds or blues – chances are you will be going green. Many football clubs are leading the way when it comes to developing their sustainable credentials. According to Envirometer, after transport used by fans to get to the club, the biggest next biggest environmental impact of a football club is electricity.
For example, Manchester City have reduced costs by fitting 5,272 LED lamps and reduced energy use by almost 1m kW hours, while at Chelsea they have adopted energy saving and motion sensor lighting. At Liverpool, a team of 10 employees are tasked with raising awareness of energy savings – they are known as the ‘Reds Going Green’ team.
And you don’t need to be one of the big spenders to make a big difference. The world’s most sustainable football club is Forest Green Rovers, which has only recently been promoted to the Football League
