The world’s first vegan football club– we offer freshly made vegan food to all players, staff and fans, which is great for the environment, health and performance, and tastes pretty good too.
We’ve been measuring our carbon footprint at FGR since 2011 as part of our Environmental Management System. It helps us to identify which areas of the club we can look at next for improvements, and we’re doing pretty well, this year we’ve seen nearly a 30% drop in emissions compared to last season:
2017/18 emissions (Tonnes)
2018/19 emissions (Tonnes)
Transport Pool Vehicles
Through this ground-breaking work at FGR Dale has been made a Climate Champion for the United Nations and the club has signed to their Climate Neutral Now pledge as well as being founder members of the Sports for Climate Action Framework. As part of our work in this area the UN have named us as the world’s first UN certified carbon-neutral football club.
If you visit us here at The New Lawn, you can also take some time before the match to follow our Eco Trail around the stadium, and you can see for yourself why FGR has been crowned the greenest club in the world.
