Leeds United rank second lowest in Premier League for green sustainability

Leeds United are the second-lowest in the Premier League for green sustainability with only Newcastle being worse than them.

BBC Sport has worked with the United Nations to research the sustainability of all 20 Premier League clubs.

The sides were told to submit evidence of efforts in 11 categories with two points per section and two bonus points given as well – making 24 points up for grabs.

As seen above, Leeds could only get 10.5 while the best teams in the league, Liverpool and Spurs, got 23.

Newcastle, the only team below the Whites scored a dismal 10.

Must improve

Football clubs these days are more aware and involved in social causes and that’s precisely the way to go.

It’s not good to see Leeds as one of the worst in the Premier League and the club must do their bit to improve the community.

The environment has been degrading over the years and they cannot afford to neglect it in such a way.

In the future, there could be more regulation for clubs so if they start to clean up their act now, it would benefit them in the future.

We do not know on which scales did they score the lowest but there were points given for things like sustainable transport, water efficiency and waste management, among other things.

Hopefully, they take these readings into account and work with the concerned authorities to improve things as soon as possible.
