We’ve been working with Forest Green Rovers Football Club for the last 8 years, taking our sustainability message to a brand new, worldwide audience. We’ve helped them become what FIFA described, ‘the greenest football club on the planet’.

The leading independent prep and senior schools at Westonbirt have taken the next step in their sustainable journey by switching to Britain’s greenest energy company, Ecotricity, who provide 100% green electricity generated from the wind and the sun.
Ecotricity – the world’s first green energy company, has today announced its green gas supply to homes and businesses is now recognised as vegan – alongside its green electricity, which received registration from The Vegan Society earlier this year.
One of the main benefits of a vegan diet is the positive impact it can have on the environment. According to researchers at Oxford Martin School, widespread adoption of a meat-free diet could see greenhouse gas emissions drop by 63%, or 70% for a vegan diet. So can veganism really stop climate change?
We’ve been working with The Vegan Society for ten years now, and have achieved a lot together in that time. Elena Orde, Campaigns and Communications Officer at The Vegan Society told us more.
Animal agriculture is responsible for 14.5% of global emissions, so reducing the amount of meat in your diet is a great way to have a positive impact on the environment. There are health benefits too, as experts advise eating less red meat and little, if any, processed meat. Small changes - such as having one meat-free day a week - can make a big difference and may also lead to a bigger shift in eating habits.
