What's Going On Here?
This season's Premier League has begun, and in celebration, Edie has ranked all teams on their sustainability. Manchester City AND United are leading the title race...with Norwich and Crystal Palace sat in relegation! Is it possible for environmental action amongst football clubs to help to engage more guys in climate action!?
What Does This Mean?
All clubs were ranked on their efforts to use low-carbon energy sources, their resource-efficiency and their use of energy management champions.
Man City’s membership of The Climate Coalition’s ‘Show The Love’ initiative and use of innovative energy-saving technologies has helped it reach the top of the league. Whilst Norwich, with its lack of transparency on environmental initiatives and energy-savings within the stadium, has left the club in 20th position.
Yes, this is not really a scientific ranking, but it does show how all aspects of our life can be, and should be, more environmentally friendly. It is also a brave attempt to engage an audience who have been shown to see sustainability and environmentalism as a lower league concern.
