The Club is delighted to announce that we have achieved a 10 per cent cut in emissions as part of our work with 10:10.
Back in September 2009 the Club became a founding participant in a new environmental campaign called 10:10 and has since been joined by thousands of individuals and organisations from across the country in committing to make a 10% cut in carbon emissions during 2010.
Having set a baseline year from which to begin the reduction process (August 2008 – July 2009) the Club spent last season (August 2009 – July 2010) dedicated to making a 10% reduction in carbon emissions across all areas of the Club.
The cut in emissions has been made by focusing on and being conscious of what we purchase, how we dispose of waste, how we travel and the energy we use.
In addition to the reduction in carbon emissions the Club has also drastically improved its stadium recycling programme, which is not accounted for in the 10:10 submission process. New procedures that have been put in place have seen a huge increase in waste diversion. 44% of stadium waste was diverted away from landfill between August 2009 and July 2010 and this percentage figure currently stands at approx 52%.
The continued success of 10:10 depends on getting as many people as possible behind the initiative and we'd like to invite every fan to sign up and be part of the challenge. 10:10 is about doing as much as you can, every percent counts and any cut in emissions will be a success story!
