Are we England’s greenest non-league football club?
Shoreham Football Club is proud member of the UN Sports for Climate Action.
We are focusing on the main contributing areas to climate change: Energy, Transport and Food/Catering and these three factors account for the majority of everyone’s daily carbon footprint.
As a member of the UN Sports for Climate Action we are looking to bring the football clubs carbon footprint down as much as possible and to hopefully influence our supporters/community and fellow clubs to do the same.
Our main principles are:
• We will continue to try and reduce our own environmental impact as much as possible
• When making any operational decisions we will take into account any ethical and sustainability concerns
• We will not work with any organisation directly involved in: fossil fuels, animal testing, tobacco, fracking or anything we feel to be unethical or immoral
• We seek to influence and educate supporters/community and fellow clubs to improve their carbon footprint
As a part of our commitment to UN Sports for Climate Action our long term plan is to publicly set reduction targets aligned with 1.5-degree in line with science.
