Non-league football side appoints net zero partner

Chester Football Club has appointed its first ever net zero advisory partner.

The non-league side has joined forces with Positive Planet to ensure its focus is not just on the pitch but on the climate too.

For three seasons, the partner will work with the club to develop a clear sustainability strategy and ensure goals are achieved.

The first step the team has taken is to adopt a new kit flying the flag for sustainability with greener materials.

Carbon accounting will be in place, alongside education and awareness programmes for staff and fans.

The club’s general manager, Georgina Slawinski, said: “It is vital that we recognise the gravity of climate change as one of the most significant challenges facing our generation and take responsibility for making more sustainable choices.

“We are excited to be working with Positive Planet, and our partnership marks the beginning of a vital journey to establish a culture of environmental sustainability within the realm of football and throughout the wider community.”

Stephen Henry, Co-Founder of Positive Planet, added: “Football clubs are pillars of the community and football’s true power lies in the opportunity to act as a carrier for genuine messages to fans and players around more sustainable behaviour. We are excited to support Chester FC on this journey.”
