Policy and Commitment
- Is a signatory of EFL Green Clubs.
- Is having discussions regarding the feasibility of having its own renewable energy sources at the stadium and/or the training ground, in the form of solar panels and/or small vertical axis wind turbines.
- Is ESOS compliant with respect to its energy management.
- Commissioned external experts to carry out a full energy use review of the stadium, to see where the club can cost-effectively make changes to cut down on energy consumption.
- Upgraded much of the lighting to new energy-efficient LED light fittings and is now looking at the feasibility of installing motion sensors to ensure that they are only on when strictly needed.
- Encourage all staff to be much more conscious regarding their energy usage, and the impact of simple things such as leaving lights and equipment switched on when not in use.
- Public transport (rail and bus) travel to Prenton Park is promoted on the club’s website.
- Bicycle racks have been installed for up to 40 bicycles, which the club hopes will encourage people to cycle to the stadium instead of using cars. The club states that it can add more in the future if the demand is there.
- Is looking into the feasibility of installing electric vehicle charging points at Prenton Park.
Single Use Plastic Reduction/Removal
- Players use refillable bottles at the Campus instead of single use plastic water bottles. This will mean there are between 400-500 fewer plastic bottles being used every week.
- Single use plastic glasses are going to be replaced with biodegradable/recyclable alternatives.
- Polystyrene food containers will be phased out in favour of biodegradable/recyclable alternatives.
- Introduced new recycling bins all around the ground, to ensure its waste is correctly separated and ensure as much as possible can be recycled.
- Following the suspension of the 2020/21 season, food that was stocked in preparation for home fixtures against Lincoln City and Fleetwood Town was donated to five Wirral charities.
- Boreholes at both Prenton Park and the training ground.
Plant based/low carbon food
- Introduced more vegan alternatives onto the matchday menus, such as vegan pasties, to increase choice for those who want to cut down on meat consumption.

Communication and Engagement
- Supported WWF’s 2023 #WorldWithoutNature campaign by removing the nature elements from the club’s crest for the day.
- Participated in Planet League for Green Football Weekend and encouraged supporters to score green goals for the club.
- Joined forces with vegan charity ‘Viva!’ in a bid to raise awareness of the environmental benefits of a vegan based diet. The club shared content on their social media channels throughout the month of January to educate fans of the benefits of a vegan based diet and encouraged them to take part in the January campaign.
- For World Environment Day 2019, Wrexham based charity ‘Given to Shine’ provided Tranmere Rovers with 100 menstrual cups which the club donated to its local women’s charity, Tomorrow’s Women Wirral. The menstrual cups, unlike other disposable sanitary products, are reusable and last for up to 10 years.
