Top London and Manchester clubs are the greenest in the Premier League, a survey performed by the BBC and Sport Positive Summit has revealed. 

In the survey, the clubs were ranked based on performance in the following categories: clean energy, energy efficiency, sustainable transport, single-use plastic reduction or removal, waste management, water efficiency, plant-based or low-carbon food options, and communications or engagement.

We hope more awareness about these initiatives will help drive increased ambition across football and other sports
