Herefordshire FA has made the commitment to being a more sustainable organisation, partnering with Sustainable Leaders in Sport (SLiS) to create their own green action plan for 2024, as well as supporting members in becoming more eco-friendly.
The partnership will provide football clubs in Herefordshire with the resources required to either self-assess their impacts or make a more serious commitment by generating a green action plan.
Alan Darfi, CEO at Herefordshire FA, said “We know that we need to start taking more formal steps to reducing our environmental impact, and supporting our members in doing the same. By partnering with Sustainable Leaders in Sport we can access practical resources to enable our clubs to make some small changes.”
“We at Herefordshire FA will also be looking at the impact of our organisation and making more changes to improve our environmental credentials”
Hannah Coles, Director at SLiS, adds that “We are delighted to have Herefordshire FA on board and are especially looking forward to engaging local clubs to find out where they’re currently at with sustainability, and how we can support them in improving. It’s the small changes that matter and will cumulatively have a huge impact over time”.
To kick off, SLiS have a special offer for the first three clubs to get in touch – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your club is interested in making some small changes and featuring in a case study.
Sustainable Leaders in Sport offers accessible solutions for grassroots sports clubs nationwide. DIY Resource Pack membership starts at £15, and the Sustainability Pathway at £60 p/a.
