Edgbaston will host the Men’s Vitality IT20 between England and New Zealand on Sunday 3 September.

This fixture is our Go Green Game – our first sustainable Major Match. The day will raise sustainability awareness amongst fans and the wider community.

Lydia Carrington, Sustainability Manager, added: “The aim of the Go Green Game is not only to reduce our emissions but to raise awareness of the influence the sporting and event industry can have on sustainability and climate change.

“Our sustainability partners, Drax and National Express West Midlands, are playing an important role in the planning and are working with Net Zero Now to help us forecast the game’s carbon footprint, identify opportunities to reduce it, and then measure the actual footprint after the game and produce a report.

“Data on everything from the number of meals and drinks served to floodlight usage, water consumption and every spectator’s travel to the stadium will be factored in.
