Gary Neville launches Sustainability in Sport

In sport, England’s most capped right back, footballer Gary Neville, has joined up with Dale Vince, renewable energy boss of Ecotricity and chair of England’s most sustainable football club, Forest Green, to launch Sustainability in Sport. The pair say that sustainability in sport is a big issue and that sport and sporting events have a big impact on the environment and that “Sustainability in Sport is an organisation created and run by a group of people with a passion for sport, community and the environment. Our primary objective is to support the continuing growth of sport within UK communities, whilst reducing the associated environmental impacts”. Forest Green already has 180 solar panels on its grandstand roof and has plans for an organic pitch.
