Real Betis have become the first La Liga club to obtain the ‘Cálculo 2021’ seal from the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge.
Betis obtain the certification after registering their latest inventory of greenhouse gases in the Register of Carbon Footprint, Compensation and CO2 Absorption Projects delivered by the Government of Spain, report Marca.
The Andalusian’s club’s environmental impact has been calculated through the sports activities carried out at their home stadium Estadio Benito Villamarín, training ground Ciudad Deportiva Luis del Sol, and the emissions from its internal and external transport and water consumption at the club.
Los Verdiblancos continue on their pathway to becoming the most sustainable football club on the planet through their ‘Forever Green Sustainability Program’, which aims to reduce GHG emissions by 10% between the 2018/19 and 2024/25 seasons.
Since the 2018/19 season, Betis have been able to reduce their carbon footprint by 35.56%. It is a sign of commendable progress, and the seal is a recognition of the club’s commitment to fighting climate change.
Betis’ work in the fight against climate change is being recognised by different organisations around the world. The club has recently been selected as the most sustainable football club in La Liga according to a study carried out by Holaluz.
