Norwich City Football Club has become an official member of the British Association for Sustainable Sport (BASIS).

This follows its pledge to becoming a more sustainable organisation and its launching of a sustainability hub in March 2021.

It has committed to the supply of more than 100,000 entirely plastic-free items for use on matchdays at its stadium, Carrow Road, including pint cups for fans.

It has also implemented a compost heap for raw food and grass cutting at its training centre to reduce landfill waste.

The club has started a three-year programme to replace all the current lighting at Carrow Road with LEDs, as well as using 100% renewable energy to power both the stadium and training centre.

Electric vehicle (EV) charging points have been installed at its training centres, as well as a vegetable garden; used by the club’s chefs to prepare fresh and sustainable food for staff and players.

Norwich has also begun offsetting its carbon footprint, through tree-planting and other environmental schemes.
