Hampden Park Sustainability Statement
Hampden, Scotland’s National Stadium, is a multi-purpose venue and the home of Scottish Football which welcomes hundreds of thousands of spectators and visitors each year.
Being at the heart of our national sport, delivering world class events and welcoming guests on a daily basis, comes with responsibility. We have a duty to our spectators, visitors and our local community to be an ambassador for the future.
We have created a Sustainability Strategy to put ambitious plans in place, not only to minimise our impact on the environment, but also to embed sustainability in everything we do, creating a positive legacy for future generations. Although football and major events are our passion, we have a vision that Hampden will be the Stadium of choice as an internationally recognised venue with a conscience. In support of Scotland’s world leading climate change targets, we will reduce carbon emissions from energy, waste and water (currently 2802 tonnes of CO2e) by 10% by the end of 2021.
- We will send zero waste direct to landfill
- We will achieve awards for environmental excellence
- We will support all those that come through our gates to make healthy food choices
- We will assist all stadium users and visitors in choosing active travel for their journeys
- We will make improvements to our grounds to enhance biodiversity
- We will reduce operating costs by improving stadium infrastructure
- We will champion behavioural change to promote sustainability at our stadium
- We will engage with the community to share Hampden as a community asset
- We will deliver an accessible stadium that embraces our diverse spectators and visitors’ individual requirements
In line with the vision for Sustainable Glasgow we will contribute to making Glasgow “One of Europe’s most Sustainable City’s” and Hampden Park will be the most Sustainable Stadium in Scotland.
