Partnership the latest in 'Reds go Green' sustainability in sports initiative
Liverpool FC, the pending champions of English Premiere League football (soccer) is taking action to further reduce its food waste and deliver on its sustainability goals via a new partnership with iugis. The club will use iugis' innovative food waste solution at the historic Anfield stadium in Liverpool, recycling food waste on site by breaking it down into water.
As part of its Reds Go Green initiative to become more environmentally friendly, the club have installed iugis' innovative organic food digester machines at Anfield Stadium. These pioneering machines use microorganisms and oxygen to transform food waste into water on site, reducing the need for off-site transport and diverting it from landfill.
According to Liverpool FC, over the past few years, the club's Reds Go Green initiative has had a significant effect on improving the club's environmental impact and fostering greater sustainability. Other positive steps Liverpool FC have already made include a commitment to reduce single-use plastic, along with the development of the LFC allotment in Marlborough Road, where food is grown to serve supporters on match day.
Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer, Liverpool FC, commented, "We're committed to becoming more environmentally friendly and have made positive strides towards becoming a truly sustainable club. This partnership with iugis is another step towards meeting this goal and will help us better manage our food waste."
"We're excited to form this new partnership in the UK with Liverpool FC," said Bill Papas, Chief Executive Officer, iugis. "Our goal is to have a dramatic impact on how food waste is managed, and working with such a premier global partner in Europe and Australia, enables us to highlight the innovative technology that is available today to dramatically reduce businesses' carbon footprints."
