The 'Green League' was established in 2019, with BBC Sport working with the United Nations-back Sport Positive Summit
to look into the sustainability of the Premier League Clubs. The teams are required to supply evidence of how they're reducing their environmental impact, with points awarded in 11 categories. The rankings are updated each year.
Points are awarded for:
- Policy and commitment
- Clean energy
- Energy efficiency
- Sustainable transport
- Single-use plastic reduction or removal
- Waste management
- Water efficiency
- Plant-based or low-carbon food
- Communications and engagement
Tottenham executive director Donna-Maria Cullen, said: "To have once again been named at the top of the Sport Positive League Table is fantastic recognition for the work that continues to be delivered across our organisation - now we must challenge ourselves to go further."
We are extremely proud and excited to have been part of their efforts to reduce their environmental impact with our bottle filler units as they've ranked 1st place in the Green League for three years in a row.
How we assisted Spurs in reducing their environmental impact
In 2019, we were approached by the team who were looking for a hydration solution for their new world-class facilities at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. With water usage and reducing single-use plastic key to their environmental initiatives
, we knew we'd be well placed to support them.
Water solutions are a huge part of sustainability within any industry. It is more important than ever to make sure that your workplace, no matter the industry, is providing adequate and sustainable drinking water. Tottenham Hotspur were no exception and we were thrilled to help them.
We supplied 23 of our drinking fountains and bottle filling stations to the Spurs. These drinking water stations not only provide cold, filtered water, but they are also potentially saving up to 3,864* plastic bottles from going to landfills every game. They even have a unique Green Ticker™ feature which counts the equivalent quantity of plastic bottles that are saved from waste. This shows the staff and visitors alike how much good they're doing for the environment.
We’d like to congratulate them on their top score – keep up the great work team!
