At The FA Group, we define sustainability as ‘the need to be efficient in the present and ensure that we protect the needs of future generations’.
Sustainability has been a key issue for The FA Group since the new Wembley Stadium opened its doors to the sporting public and music fans in 2007. We developed our first sustainability strategy for Wembley Stadium in 2009 and aligned our Environmental Management System (EMS) at Wembley Stadium to the ISO 14001:2004 international standard.
We’re now focusing our attention on driving our sustainability strategy across The FA Group, managing both our environmental and social impacts. This year, we will be conducting a materiality assessment to understand our key impact areas across all of The FA Group’s activities. We will establish a new sustainability strategy which will be led by our internal sustainability committee ‘FAST’ (FA Sustainability Team).
We’ve already developed a new Environmental Policy to manage our environmental impacts across the business, having assessed how The FA Group’s activities interact with the environment. We have categorised our significant environmental impacts into the following six priority areas: energy, water, waste, transport, marketing and communications and procurement.
We’ve also established a number of programmes to enhance the skills and employability of those in our local community.
