Sustainability report published ahead of One Pack, One Planet fixture

Wolves have published their first environmental sustainability report, one year on from the launch of its One Pack, One Planet sustainability project. 

The report highlights key achievements the club have made over the past 12 months and reinforces the club’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.

Supporters can download the report by clicking here.

The publication comes ahead of Thursday night’s home fixture against Manchester United, which has been selected as this season’s dedicated One Pack, One Planet focus fixture.

To raise awareness of the club’s sustainability campaign and the need for everyone to play their part, One Pack, One Planet messaging will feature within the matchday programme, on pin-badges worn by staff and on LED perimeter advertising around Molineux, broadcasting the environmental message across the globe.

Supporters will also be offered a 20% discount on some of the many plant-based food options in the Molineux concourses, including the Vegan Keema Pie (ve), Chorizo Sausage Roll (ve) and Vegan Hotdog (ve). 

In addition, produce grown at the Wolves Foundation’s Head4Health allotment will be used across matchday hospitality menus.

Wolves will also be sharing sustainability-focused content across our media channels. This includes a feature in which Dan Bentley, Wolves goalkeeper and One Pack, One Planet ambassador, meets with head of grounds Wayne Lumbard to learn about the steps being taken at Compton Park training ground to benefit wildlife, nature and biodiversity.

A survey on fan travel will also be launched this week, with supporters in with a chance of winning a match worn shirt from the Manchester United fixture by completing the survey on travel habits. This information will be used to further inform the club’s carbon footprint and look at which initiatives might be most effective in reducing the club’s environmental impacts.

Wolves’ latest carbon footprint data, shared within the environmental sustainability report, shows that the club’s highest emissions are caused by fan travel. The report also highlights the other ways in which Wolves cause carbon emissions. This includes sharing data on men's first-team travel arrangements, which was agreed following engagement with our environmental Fan Focus Group.

Wolves’ facilities, safety & security director Steve Sutton said: “Since launching our One Pack, One Planet sustainability commitments, we’ve been working hard to do even more to reduce the club’s environmental impact. We’re proud to share our annual report, to highlight what’s changing but also to show the important role that everyone involved with the club has to play, including staff, supporters and partners.”

Thom Rawson, One Pack, One Planet project lead and founder of Sustainable Football said: “It’s been a pleasure to support Wolves start to embed One Pack, One Planet over the last year. The annual report demonstrates the excellent work that continues to be delivered by colleagues across the club, while recognising the club will need to continue to do more to deliver environmental goals.”
