Home Grown Initative
In January 2021, Southampton Football Club launched the Home Grown Initiative, combining the club’s commitment to environmental sustainability with its strategy of developing world class talent on the pitch.
For every Academy or RTC player that makes their First Team debut, the club will plant 250 trees, with a commitment to offsetting over 3,000 tonnes of carbon emissions over the next four years. You can track the progress the club is making towards this target below, with updates for every Academy graduate that makes their debut for the First Team.
The Home Grown Initiative is part of Southampton FC's sustainability strategy, The Halo Effect, coming under the club’s environmental responsibilities.
