As Ambassador and former CEO of Forest Green Rovers Football Club, Helen has played a key role in FGR becoming “the greenest football club in the world” (FIFA), the “world’s first UN certified carbon-neutral football club*”, and first and only vegan football club. She has extensive experience in running environmentally sustainable projects, partnerships, certification programmes (organic), campaigns and events – with a previous career in the food industry.
Her aim of the day is to share some valuable insights into the behavioural change impacts EFL Community Trusts are having (and can have) on their immediate and wider community as they fulfil their new role of championing environmental sustainability. Helen also runs the charity, Sustainability in Sport, putting Sustainability at the heart of Sport – a friend of the Summit.
*The Club is signed up to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) initiative called “Climate Neutral Now”
