Carbon Footprinting 

Reducing your
clubs emissions


We've partnered with Climate Action for Associations to offer an affordable, hands-on and simple carbon footprinting service for sports clubs.

Reducing your emissions is the main way to ensure your club is sustainable. We've listed the below steps that any club can take to start your journey to net zero. 

1. Start Your Net Zero Journey

The first step is to agree at a club level and communicate that you are committed to being sustainable and starting your journey to net zero. This is important because it means everyone is on the same page and reducing emissions is a whole organisation activity that involves different people across different areas of the club so it is key that everyone is aware of the direction of travel.

2. Gather and Record Your Emissions

The next thing you need to do is figure out your club's current level of emissions. Scientists call this 'baselining'. Baselining tells you where your club is at so you can put plans in place to reduce your carbon footprint and costs. Depending on the size and type of club you are, this may involve collecting and recording information that relates to your:

  • facilities

  • vehicles

  • electricity

  • heating and cooling

  • waste

3. Reporting

Once you have know what your emissions are and you have put a plan in place to reduce them over a period of years, you will be able to set a target that you can work towards. It's really important to report on and communicate the progress that you make to your staff, members, players, board, committees and general public.

  • travel and transportation

  • suppliers

  • leased assets

  • treatment of sold products (such as sports kit and football boots)

  • purchased goods and services.
