The Trust is delighted to learn that Fulham has signed up for the Green Football Weekend, happening this week in the buildup to our away game against Burnley. Trust board member, Sarah Keig, caught up with Head of Strategy at Fulham, Tim Griffith, who is leading the sustainability charge for the club. These are early days for the club’s plans for making Craven Cottage more sustainable, but they are tackling the cause head on and there are exciting plans ahead.

Some of the changes already implemented by the club includes:

  • Through a partnership with Gridserve, the club car fleet is fully electric, and ten charging points have been installed across Craven Cottage and Motspur Park.
  • Club kit partner, Adidas, now ensure that the home, away & third kits are manufactured from 100% recycled materials.
  • The club and the Fulham Foundation are participating in the #TransfertoVeg campaign. This aims to show how small lifestyle differences can add up to a big difference for the environment and particularly how eating more vegetable-based meals can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Recently, the club hosted a sustainability and environmental awareness workshop for Academy players (U14s, U17s and U18s), in partnership with ‘Football For Future’. The sessions were geared towards helping the players understand the fundamentals of climate change and its relationship with football and developing an understanding of the practical ways the football industry can become more sustainable.
  • The Foundation’s 2023-24 Social Action Challenge, which engages primary, secondary and community groups, is focused on helping young people create and implement ideas to protect the planet

It was also great to hear that a new sustainability page will launch on soon. It will summarise the Club’s progress across key areas of sustainability and keep fans aware of new initiatives and projects as they arise.

We know that climate change is a pressing, yet complex issue that Fulham alone cannot fix, but have a role to play towards the larger goal of reducing output on our planet. It’s imperative for this that the club and fans work together, and the Trust are keen to support in any way that we can.
