Saints rise up Premier League Sustainability Table

By SFC Media time Wed 02 Feb Environmental Responsibility

Southampton Football Club is proud to be at the forefront of environmental sustainability in the Premier League having been announced as the joint-third greenest club in the 2021 Premier League Sustainability Table.

The club has been recognised by Sport Positive and the BBC for demonstrating its commitment to ensuring a sustainable future, launching The Halo Effect at the beginning of 2021 alongside a range of initiatives to lessen our impact on the environment.

Over the course of the last 12 months, the club launched its new away kit with a beach clean to highlight the renewable materials used to produce it, and also committed to planting trees for every Academy or RTC graduate to make their first team debut, helping to offset the club’s carbon emissions.

In the coming days the club will be publishing a review of action it took in 2021 as part of its sustainability strategy, The Halo Effect, while looking ahead to more exciting initiatives in the year ahead.

Southampton Football Club’s Chief Commercial Officer, David Thomas, said: “We’re delighted to be recognised by Sports Positive and the BBC for the work we’re doing to make the club more environmentally sustainable.

“Sustainability is a big focus on the decisions we make as a club and we’re proud of what we’ve already achieved, but we also recognise that there is more to be done, and we’re excited about sharing our progress as we continue on our journey to affect positive changes.”
