Winning goal for Liverpool's FC green policy

The club has reduced its gas consumption by 18 per cent and electricity consumption by 13 per cent over the past 12 months, beating its 10 per cent target.
Carbon consumption fell by 1,100 tonnes over the year and about 718,475kWh of electricity was saved, enough to power about 350 homes for a year.

The club had spent about £1m on initiatives such as installing smart meters to build up a picture of energy use, as well as fitting LED lighting at the club's Anfield stadium, improving recycling facilities and establishing green champions to drive savings across the club's different operations.

Liverpool would now look to set new targets for further reductions of between five and 10 per cent over the coming 12 months to "build momentum" around the carbon and energy targets, with future initiatives set to address areas such as the flood lighting. The goals are still being finalised but are likely to appear on the club's website before the end of the yearFC.
