Tottenham have announced that they have now been recognised as the greenest club in the Premier League for the fourth year in a row as they finished at the top of the Sport Positive EPL league table.

The Sports Positive EPL league table deduces the carbon footprint and the other relevant information on environmental sustainability from all 20 clubs, including the environmental impact of each match and the various initiatives undertaken.

Tottenham have emerged as leaders in this domain, particularly since moving to the new training ground and more recently, the new stadium, now topping the table for a fourth season in a row.

The club also reiterated that they have taken up several new initiatives over recent years, which include delivering sustainability training sessions to all players across the men’s and women’s teams, as well as the academy.

Tottenham have also given a commitment to halve their carbon emissions by 2030 and become net zero by 2040.

Reacting to topping the table for a fourth year in a row, executive director Donna-Maria Cullen, Executive said: “We are proud to have been named at the top of the Sport Positive league table for a fourth year running.

“As a Club, we are acutely aware of the role we can play in addressing the threat posed by climate change and have embedded environmental sustainability within everything we do.

“It is extremely important we take our players with us on this journey and the first-of-its-kind training we have recently facilitated for all teams is a huge part of this.

“We also acknowledge there is still so much more to do as we work towards achieving our net zero target of 2040.”

Ben Davies, who was one of the players that took part in the sustainability training delivered at the club, said: “As players we’re fully aware of the amount of work the Club is doing on the sustainability front.

“The training gave us an understanding of the impact a huge organisation like ours can have on the environment while also talking us through the ways we can reduce our emissions and be as sustainable as possible.

“The more educated we are on the subject, the better we can be – it’s about taking small steps as individuals and, by using our platforms to encourage others to do the same, it all adds up.”
