By: Watford FC Staff

Watford Football Club welcomes the independent publication of current results against sustainability yardsticks as part of a wider analysis of Premier League clubs, published by BBC Sport (click HERE to access).

The club’s current scoring reflects solid progress in many areas over the past year, with more successes expected as the result of planning and future activities.

Renewably-sourced electricity, contributions to the ‘Coolearth’ project, separated waste streams, recycling facilities at all sites and other matchday developments such as the use of reusable cups and lower-carbon / vegan options at kiosks and in hospitality areas are all examples of the Hornets’ ongoing commitment to improving its actions to support sustainability.

Several local projects launched by Watford FC’s Community Sports & Education Trust are also contributing positively, while on a larger scale planning permission is being sought for solar panels installation at its London Colney training ground as the club looks toward the longer-term with its commitments.

Plans are afoot to better bring to life the club’s sustainability work across its communication channels – including a dedicated section at, containing the publication of a ‘Net Zero Road Map’.

Educational delivery programmes to the Hornets’ workforce and the introduction of energy monitoring systems will also help drive Watford FC’s medium and long-term push to keep developing great habits which support an increased sustainability profile across the club.
