I’m a Liverpool supporter and I’m excited that we’re on the brink of winning the Premier League after a long 30 year wait. In this post, we take a closer look at how Liverpool FC is getting more sustainable.
Liverpool FC is taking action to further reduce its food waste and deliver on its sustainability goals via a partnership with iugis in Europe and Australia. The club will use iugis’ food waste solution, recycling food waste by breaking it down into water.
As part of its Reds Go Green initiative to become more environmentally friendly, the club have installed iugis’ innovative organic food digester machines at Anfield.
These machines use microorganisms and oxygen to transform food waste into water on site, reducing the need for off-site transport and diverting it from landfill.
Over the past few years, the club’s Reds Going Green initiative has had a significant effect on improving the club’s environmental impact and fostering greater sustainability.
Positive steps have already been made to reduce single-use plastic, along with the development of the LFC allotment in Marlborough Road, where food is grown to serve supporters on match day.
Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer, Liverpool FC, said: “We’re committed to becoming more environmentally friendly and have made positive strides towards becoming a truly sustainable club. This partnership with iugis is another step towards meeting this goal and will help us better manage our food waste.”
Bill Papas, Chief Executive Officer, iugis, said: “We’re excited to form this new partnership in the UK with Liverpool FC. Our goal is to have a dramatic impact on how food waste is managed and working with such a premier global partner in Europe and Australia, enables us to highlight the innovative technology that is available today to dramatically reduce businesses’ carbon footprints.”
Liverpool can now add sustainability to their list of massive achievements: Founded in 1892, Liverpool FC is one of the world’s most historic and famous football clubs, having won 18 League Titles, seven FA Cups, eight League Cups, six European Cups, three UEFA Cups, four European Super Cups, the Club World Cup and 15 Charity Shields.
