The Freshti biomass boiler for FC Metz is not an isolated case. The Saint-Symphorion stadium, in particular its new South Stand, is largely supplied by Metz’s district heating network, which relies on the Chambier biomass power plant. However, heating methods are not the only area of the club’s work on environmental issues. “We know that like all professional clubs, we set an example to the public,” explains Helen Schrub, general manager of FC Metz. That is why we have been committed to the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) approach for many years.
This is reflected, among other things, in the creation of a carbon footprint for the club, but also in the development of concrete actions in terms of environmental protection. All employees of the club, starting with the players, will thus benefit from training in eco-gesture in partnership with UEM. And on match nights, a number of things have been implemented (eg returnable glasses) to limit the amount of waste produced.
Other actions, such as the reduced use of phytosanitary products for lawn maintenance and the development of carpooling solutions for supporters, complement this increasingly virtuous model.
