Award-winning Wembley Stadium – latest sustainability report

The FA Group have recently launched its third sustainability report. The report, co-authored by Eco-Age, highlights The FA and Wembley Stadium’s achievements and continued leadership in environmental sustainability.

Commenting on the report, Roger Maslin, Managing Director at Wembley Stadium said:

I am pleased to launch this report, as it is a true testament to the hard work of the FA Group Green Team.

By recognising the importance of sustainability for our business through minimising our impacts on the environment, Wembley is now globally recognised for its award-winning Environmental Management System and sustainability achievements.

James Huartson, Sustainability Manager said:

I am proud of what we have achieved at Wembley. We are by no means perfect yet, but fundamentally, we are committed to improving our environmental performance and will continue to do so.

Highlights have included the Green Apple, Stadium Business and Green Tourism Awards. Wembley is also the first stadium to achieve the highest category – the coveted three stars – in the Industry Green Certification. It has now become one of the first organisations to achieve the Carbon Trust Waste Standard.

Wembley Stadium is an industry leader in environmental sustainability. Though its award winning Environmental Management System (EMS), which is certified to international standard ISO 14001, it has been able to efficiently manage and reduce its environmental impacts. The Stadium’s biggest milestones have included becoming a zero waste to landfill venue and reducing electricity consumption by 23%.
