Worcester Warriors launch Time for Change programme

The Worcester Warriors have launched their Time for Change program of improvements and developments both on and off the pitch at their Sixways stadium.

Recognising that sport plays an important role in so many people’s lives, the Warriors are leveraging the power of their platform to lead the way in making the planet a better place for future generations. In doing so sustainability and saving the planet has been placed firmly at the forefront of all decisions they are making as a club and as a business.

The headline initiative for this sustainability announcement is that the club has become Europe’s first professional rugby club to sign up to the United Nations Sport for Climate Action framework. By doing this they join a number of BASIS members including Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton Football Clubs who both announced their signing of the framework earlier this year.

By signing up to the framework, the club is demonstrating its commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible consumption by agreeing to incorporate the following five sustainability principles into management strategies, policies and procedures:

  • Undertake systematic efforts to promote greater environmental responsibility;
  • Reduce overall climate impact;
  • Educate for climate action;
  • Promote sustainable and responsible consumption;
  • Advocate for climate action through communication.

Further to signing the framework, the Warriors are planning to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement. This will see them reduce emissions by at least 45% by 2030 with a view to becoming net-zero by 2040. Future initiatives as part of this journey to net-zero and the wider sustainability strategy are still to be announced. These will centre around the six pillars of sustainability as identified by the club; energy, waste, transport, food, biodiversity and personal responsibility.
