Sustainability in Sports

Major sporting events moving towards sustainability

The big story this week is the Lionesses’ victory in the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 for the first time.  🙌⚽

Also for the first time at a major football match, UEFA have implemented biodegradable packaging made from seaweed at all vendors in Wembley Stadium to reduce the carbon footprint of the final.  

We wrote a few weeks ago about Wimbledon’s sustainability commitment, and now other major sporting events are thinking more sustainably.  Find out more about UEFA’s move below!
