Norwich City Football Club is currently promoting the importance of sustainability and showcasing how vital it is to adopt more environmentally friendly practices.

The club has been working hard to become a greener organisation on and off the pitch and has made a number of small changes to how it operates on a matchday.

Since 2020, the club has worked with its sustainability partner MM Kotkamills to look at ways of reducing its carbon footprint. During this period, a number of measures have been implemented across all club sites.

In total, the club has announced 13 sustainable practices it is currently undertaking.

1. Norwich's home kit, which is manufactured by Joma, consists of 100 percent recycled plastic.

2. A commitment to staff education to help hit sustainability objectives.

3. The majority of vegetables for first team meals are grown and picked at Lotus Training Centre.
