Getafe CF signs with Allcot Group for forestry project

Spanish Primera Liga football club, Getafe C.F. has agreed a landmark collaboration with ALLCOT Group, a leading sustainability solutions provider. Under the terms of this 5 year commitment, Getafe C.F. becomes “one of the leading environmental and socially sustainable first tier clubs in Europe”.

Through the agreement, Getafe C.F. will demonstrate its environmental commitment and support of climate-friendly operations by neutralizing the greenhouse gases (GHG) it produces.

It will support a forestry project with wide-ranging social benefits to the local communities; an innovative sustainable merchandising initiative using sustainable timber sourced from the forestry project will provide much needed economic benefits.

The club is enabling its fans to select the specific forestry project themselves from a voting page on the website, where there is a choice of three independently validated and verified forestry projects according to the respected Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).

This agreement between Getafe C.F. and ALLCOT Group represents a significant and long-term commitment to environmental awareness, and places Getafe C.F. at the forefront of sustainability and global citizenship.
