Ecotricity and Forest Green Rovers


The Background

Ecotricity got involved with Forest Green Rovers (FGR) in August 2010 – for a mixture of reasons part social and part environmental.

FGR is an important part of the local community in Stroud (where we’re based) and a significant employer. It’s a football club with serious heritage too, being over 100 years old.

It needed saving, it was local to us, and we were able – those were the first three ingredients. The compelling final ingredient was the opportunity to use football as a ‘new channel’ for our message, for our work – which is about sustainability and bringing it to all walks of life. It’s about greening up Britain.

At FGR we have the opportunity to create a truly sustainable football club, which would be a world first. Somewhere we can demonstrate all of our thinking and technology, and through that engage with a new, large and passionate audience. A global audience ultimately. It’s the chance to introduce some Eco into the world of sport, and not just football – as we’ve quickly discovered through our link with Gary Neville and Sustainability in Sport.
