Hull KR Foundation and wider club launch new Zero Robins partnership

Hull KR and Hull KR Foundation are proud to announce the new ‘Zero Robins’ sustainability partnership, with the aim of understanding and reducing the club’s current carbon footprint.

The ‘Zero Robins’ initiative will be implemented across every department within the Club and Foundation with the aim of reducing the club’s carbon footprint through sustainable commitments in and around Sewell Group Craven Park.

Each aspect of the club and Hull KR Foundation will nominate a ‘Zero Robins’ champion to implement sustainable and carbon reducing measures within their departments. These ‘Zero Robins’ will then meet on a bi-monthly basis to discuss progress and plan exciting, future initiatives.

Both Hull KR and the Foundation have signed up to SME Climate Hub, which requires the commitment of halving our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, achieving net zero emissions by 2050 and disclosing our progress towards this on a yearly basis.

Locally, The Robins and Hull KR Foundation have also signed up to local Hull initiative, ‘Oh Yes Net Zero’, which aims to reduce carbon emissions within the city.

Through the funding assistance of Sport England and Rugby League World Cup 2021, any developments of facilities around the stadium will use sustainable materials where possible.

Hull KR CEO, Paul Lakin added : “The Zero Robins partnership is an important commitment from both the club and Hull KR Foundation reduce their carbon emissions with the aim of becoming sustainable for many years to come.

“The partnership is a big step in pushing towards a greener Hull with both Hull KR and Hull KR Foundation at the forefront. We’re excited to rise to the challenge of improving our carbon footprint in the local community while driving sustainable change at Sewell Group Craven Park.”

Hull KR Foundation CEO Craig Shepherd agreed with this sentiment: “Through ‘Zero Robins’ we aim to tackle climate change as a partnership between Hull KR and Hull KR Foundation.

“The Humber region is passionate about reducing its’ carbon footprint and we are aligned with that mission, aiming to halve our emissions by 2030 and become net zero by 2050.”

“We are encouraging all employees to complete the SME Climate Hub’s ‘Climate Fit’ training and reviewing ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint in everything we do.

“Hopefully, leading by example will encourage the communities we serve to join us in reducing greenhouse gas emissions to play a small part in saving the planet.”
