Octopus Energy turn Cardiff Arms Park green

Corporate | 10th October 2019

Cardiff Arms Park is now powered with 100 per cent renewable energy thanks to a new partnership between Cardiff Blues and Octopus Energy.

As part of a commitment to become more sustainable, Wales’ Capital Region have joined forces with the energy supplier to turn the Arms Park green.

Octopus Energy already power Arsenal Football Club’s Emirates Stadium and Colney Wood training ground and have now turned their attention to the Blues.

Zoisa Walton, Director of Octopus Energy for Business, said: “We’ve known Cardiff Blues for some time and have been really impressed with their reputation for environmental and sustainable activity working together with partners.

“We think they are the perfect partner to help us tackle growing climate issues and raise awareness of the place that clean energy has in our sustainable future. 

“The club’s Community Foundation uses sport and education to inspire, engage and improve communities – and we’re delighted to power such a forward-thinking team.” 

Throughout the partnership, Octopus Energy will also extend and encourage the switch to fairly priced, clean energy with fans and associated rugby clubs.

It is also just the latest step Cardiff Blues are taking to become more environmentally friendly with a sustainability committee already planning and exploring further changes.

Cardiff Blues chief executive Richard Holland added: “Cardiff Blues is thrilled to announce our partnership with Octopus Energy, and it marks a further step forward in making our city more sustainable.

“We are really proud to lead the way in switching to power that doesn’t have to cost the earth and look forward to supporting others in our community that may wish to do the same.”
