Cleaner Products have been actively developing a more sustainable business for over a decade, we achieved BSEN ISO 14001 (the European standard) in September 2010 and were the only chemical manufacturer to achieve the standard at the first time of asking, so when people ask us if our products and systems are environmentally friendly the answer is “YES”, in fact as the name suggests Cleaner Products are No 1 in the UK
Our chairmans beloved Tottenham Hotspur Football club has been named the Premier League’s greenest club following a study conducted by the UN-backed Sport Positive Summit, because of a range of sustainable measures implemented across their entire operation. Furthermore, Spurs have partnered Sky to host the world’s first net zero carbon football game at an elite level. The 19th September fixture against Chelsea at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is supported by COP26 and the Premier League, and will be branded #GameZero, with the ambition of being net zero carbon. This is achieved when all direct emissions are reduced as much as possible, with the remainder offset through natural projects that remove emissions from the atmosphere.
#GameZero will demonstrate the green steps that fans, the sporting world, and broadcasters can take to work towards a zero-carbon future. Sky is a Principal Partner and Media Partner to COP26 and has committed to be net zero carbon by 2030, cutting its own emissions and those made by customers using its products, by 50 per cent over the next decade.
Tottenham are applying a range of sustainable measures implemented across our operations. Measures include:
• 100 per cent renewable energy and Zero Scope 2 emissions at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with LED lighting (including floodlights) and high efficiency building services systems in place to reduce energy use.
• Single-use plastic reduction measures in place across the Club – players drink water from cartons, food is served in recyclable packaging with wooden cutlery, and even beer keg caps are recycled at the stadium.
• Water consumption minimised with waterless urinals and low flow fittings and fixtures.
• An ecological habitat established at our Training Centre, including an organic Kitchen Garden; hundreds of new and semi-mature trees and tens of thousands of new plants and hedgerows; bug hotels and bat houses; wildlife ponds; green roofs to capture and re-harvest rainwater; solar panels and air source heat pumps.
• The Nike shirts that players wear on the pitch and the replica jerseys for fans to buy are constructed with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
