How will the Go Green Game be a sustainable match?
The Men’s IT20 between England and New Zealand at Edgbaston on Sunday 3 September will be our Go Green Game – the UK’s first sustainable international match.
The fixture will be used to drive down emissions and the match’s carbon footprint, whilst aiming to raise sustainability awareness amongst fans and the wider community.
The stadium has secured a mix of solar, wind and hydro power for September, to ensure preparation days, matchday and clean-up days for the IT20 are covered by locally sourced renewable energy. While other initiatives such as no single-use plastic, free public transport from National Express West Midlands will be deployed.
Sustainability Manager Lydia Carrington said: “There will be improved recycling facilities at the game, and increased vegetarian and vegan food, plus we’re working with the ECB to minimize the environmental impact of players.
“We have our sustainability partners, Drax and National Express, providing renewable energy and public transport services, 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.”
