Arsenal Football Club has committed to powering its stadium with renewable energy produced from solar panels and wasted food in a bid to reduce its carbon footprint. The famous North London club has signed a contract with Octopus Energy to source energy from anaerobic digestion plants and solar farms. It is offsetting carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels. Arsenal isn’t the only soccer club to use green energy. Forest Green Rovers is a vegan team based in Gloucestershire, owned by the clean-energy supplier Ecotricity Group, whose chairman is building a new stadium made almost entirely of wood,and already uses a solar-powered robot lawnmower.
