Man City top the sustainability league
Manchester City is the English Premier League’s most sustainable club. The current champions have deployed technologies such as tri-generation systems, absorption chillers, combined heat and power, air-source heat pumps and LED lighting across the campus, and have installed systems to recycle wastewater, according to edie’s EPL Sustainability Ranking.
Fellow Mancunians Manchester United rank second and can boast two awards from the Carbon Trust for energy efficiency and carbon reduction. Arsenal, which last year became the first UK football club to install a battery storage system, is in third place – since 2017, all of the 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium’s electricity needs have been met with renewables.
Newly promoted Norwich City are bottom of the pile on sustainability. The club does not don’t list information regarding its environmental policies or progress to date anywhere on its website.
