Arsenal tops Premier League sustainability table

Emirates stadium pre-match

We are proud to be leading the way in sustainability among Premier League football clubs.

BBC Sport has worked with the United Nations-backed Sport Positive Summit to compile research into the sustainability of all 20 Premier League clubs.

The clubs were asked to provide evidence of schemes in eight categories:

  • clean energy
  • energy efficiency
  • sustainable transport
  • single-use plastic reduction or removal
  • waste management
  • water efficiency
  • plant-based or low-carbon food options
  • communications or engagement

Clubs were awarded one point per category if they had suitable initiatives taking place in their stadiums, training grounds and/or offices and half a point if plans were being developed in that area but were yet to fully materialise.

Arsenal came out top of the league scoring 8 points – the maximum available.

Hywel Sloman, Operations Director at Arsenal, said: “Every generation is significantly more environmentally aware than the last - we have a responsibility to our younger fans to ensure that we are providing that leadership for them."
