IN OTHER NEWS: Worcester Warriors have become the first professional rugby club in Europe to sign up to the United Nations Sports for Climate Action as part of the club’s commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible consumption.
Warriors have joined international and national sports governing bodies including World Rugby, International Olympic Committee, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as well as European Professional Club Rugby and football giants Arsenal, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain in making the commitment to sustainability and tackling climate change by supporting the UN initiative.
As a signatory to the UN Framework Warriors are part of the Paris Agreement, a legally binding international treaty on climate change, and are committed to reducing Green House Gas emissions by at least 45 per cent by 2030 and be net zero by 2040 and publishing an annual emissions report.
The sustainability initiative forms part of Warriors’ Time For Change programme of improvements and developments on an off the pitch at Sixways.
“The threat to our planet posed by global warming is a clear and obvious and there are a number of simple and positive steps that we can take, both individually and collectively, to protect the environment,” said Warriors Managing Director Peter Kelly.
“As a club we have already introduced a number of important measures at Sixways to reduce our carbon footprint and improve sustainability. But there is much more that we can and will do. Sustainability and protecting the environment are now at the forefront of many of the decisions we will make as a club and business.
