MEASURING & OFFSETTING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Sounders FC works in collaboration with Seattle-based Sustainable Business Consulting to calculate our greenhouse gas emissions and identify opportunities to reduce our impacts wherever possible.
We team up annually with community partner Forterra, inviting our team, staff, fans and community members to plant trees in local natural areas to offset our emissions and clean up the air and water. The trees we plant are monitored through maturity to ensure long-term impact.
On March 6, 2022, we planted trees along the Green-Duwamish River in Tukwila with Forterra, Dirt Corps, staff, fans and our community to offset both our 2019 and 2020 footprints!
