Our ambition at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens, is to operate the most sustainable rugby stadium in the country and to be a pioneer for sustainability in rugby and beyond.
We operate several projects and systems to support this aim – helping our environment, reducing energy use and waste, and both supporting and educating our community of supporters and other visitors to the stadium.
Saints will continue to investigate new opportunities and technologies to help us achieve our aim of being a leader in sustainability within Premiership Rugby and British sport.
In April 2022, the Club signed up to the UN’s Sports for Climate Action Framework – committing to the UN’s five climate action principles and setting a net-zero emissions target by 2040. We are also a member of BASIS (the British Association for Sustainable Sport), the sustainability hub for the UK sports industry.
“We’re proud to be pioneers in sustainability within the Gallagher Premiership. We intend to use the power and reach of Northampton Saints to inspire our community to push for a more sustainable future for everyone.”Julia Chapman, Finance & Operations Director
