Club takes another major step in fight against climate change

Mon 25 January 2021, 10:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur has taken another significant step in the fight against climate change by signing up to the UN’s Sports for Climate Action Framework.

The Club joins a number of signatories from across the sporting community, including FIFA, UEFA, The FA, the International Olympic Committee, Formula 1, Sky Sports and BBC Sport.

Club takes another major step in fight against climate change

• Tottenham Hotspur signs UN’s Sports for Climate Action Framework.
• Initiative calls on sporting organisations to demonstrate a commitment towards ensuring the industry is on the path to a low-carbon future.
• Chairman Daniel Levy says “the climate needs to be at forefront of all our minds” beyond the current pandemic and calls on people not to “slip back into bad habits”.
• The Club recently became a founding partner of Count Us In – a global movement aiming to mobilise one billion people in the fight against climate change.

The Sports for Climate Action initiative calls on sporting organisations to acknowledge the contribution of the sports sector to climate change and a collective responsibility to strive towards climate neutrality for a safer planet.

By signing the Framework, the Club has demonstrated its commitment to playing its part to ensure the sports sector is on the path to a low-carbon future.

In line with the five core principles enshrined in the Framework and the aims of the Paris Agreement, signatories strive to:

1) Promote greater environmental responsibility.
2) Reduce the overall climate impact from sports.
3) Use their platforms to educate for climate action.
4) Promote sustainable and responsible consumption.
5) Advocate for climate action through communications.

Tottenham Hotspur is dedicated to minimising the environmental impacts of its activities across all Club operations. We embrace initiatives and technologies that reduce our environmental impact whenever possible, working towards improving efficiency and sustainability across the Club at all levels – encouraging employees, suppliers and partners to do the same.

Last year, we became a founding partner of Count Us In – an unprecedented global movement aiming to mobilise one billion people to act on climate change. We encourage fans to take 16 practical and high impact steps to protect what we love from carbon pollution before it is too late.

Club Chairman Daniel Levy said: “Looking to our future beyond the current pandemic, our message is that the climate needs to be at forefront of all our minds. We have seen people take greater pride in their environment during the lockdowns of the past year – when we return to normality, we cannot slip back into bad habits and lose sight of this.

“As an important next step towards achieving our climate goals, I am pleased to confirm that Tottenham Hotspur supports the vision outlined in the UN Sports for Climate Action Framework.

“By becoming a signatory, we express our intent to support and implement the principles enshrined within the Framework, utilising our truly global platform to drive greater awareness of climate change amongst our fanbase and beyond.”

Lindita Xhaferi-Salihu, Sports for Climate Action Lead at UN Climate Change, said: “We are excited to welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Sports for Climate Action family and we look forward to working together to deliver and inspire climate action around the world.

“We invite other football clubs to follow suit and join us in the most important race of all time – the race against climate change.”

Nigel Topping, UK High Level Champion for COP26, said: "Sport has a massive role to play in the race to a healthier and more resilient future and it's fantastic to see Spurs stepping up to the challenge.

“I welcome the Club taking steps to tackle climate change by committing to reducing emissions from its own operations as well as using its platform to inspire climate action from fans and society at large."

We are offsetting our carbon footprint in a myriad of different ways – to date, we have planted thousands of new and semi-mature trees and tens of thousands of new plants, hedges and flowers across our Training Centre to establish an ecological habitat.

The Club was previously a founder member of the 10:10 initiative, which called on individuals, businesses, schools and other organisations to cut their emissions by 10 per cent in a year. This founder membership and the Club’s work during that period has informed our policies moving forward since implementation in 2009.
