CSE serves up energy report for the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club

28 April 2011

Back in 2009, CSE was asked to look at the opportunities for energy and carbon reduction at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club – or as it’s more commonly known, Wimbledon.

Like all organisations, the AELTCC needed to lower its annual energy consumption in order to save money, and they are also required to comply with legislation such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme – designed to raise energy awareness and encourage change in large organisations.

The report, which contains an energy audit of the site (undertaken by CSE) and a baseline carbon footprint (undertaken by Best Foot Forward) is not publically available for commercial reasons, but a series of recommendations based on our study can be found on the project profile.

“We are delighted to have worked with the most prestigious tennis clubs in the world,” said Simon Roberts, CSE Chief Executive. “Sports venues are major consumers of energy and international sporting events are increasingly examined for their environmental impact, so this is a very exciting project for CSE to have tackled.”
