Eight clubs ranked higher than Everton in the 2021 Green League but the Blues’ new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will be one of the most sustainable in the Premier League
Just as the first team are now aiming to do under Frank Lampard, Everton are aiming to climb up the Premier League table when it comes to sustainability with the move to their new stadium.
BBC Sport have devised a ‘Green League’ to measure the environmental awareness of all 20 clubs currently in the top flight of English football.
Working with the United Nations-backed Sport Positive Summit, teams were asked to provide evidence of their efforts in 11 categories – policy & commitment; clean energy; energy efficiency; sustainable transport; single use plastic reduction; waste management; water efficiency; plant based/low carbon food; biodiversity; education; communication & engagement.
Eight clubs bettered Everton’s score of 16 with their neighbours Liverpool (23) coming joint top with Tottenham Hotspur.
However, going forward, the Blues new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will be one of the most sustainable in the Premier League.
