SUSTAINABILITY

Lord's is an inaugural member of BASIS (the British Association for Sustainable Sport) and has been working for many years to minimise the grounds greenhouse gas emissions. Lord's switched to 100% renewable electricity in October 2016, then switched to 100% wind power a year later. This switch has reduced the annual carbon footprint from utilities by 80%.

In 2018 Lord's reduced single use plastics by 1.5 million pieces by introducing a washable, reusable cup, removing straws, selling water in aluminium cans and soft drinks from bulk dispensers into reusable cups and removing plastic bags from all shops.

Spectators are encouraged to refill their water bottles from one of the four water fountains or twenty-five bottle refill points located around the ground.

Lord's has a comprehensive recycling scheme with three different waste streams where glass, clear plastics & metals and general waste are separated. Further, unused edible food is given to City Harvest who redistributes it to charities and worthy cases around London.

SAFETY

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has a full, dedicated security team working on plans for a safe and secure tournament for all participants and spectators.

We are working with police in all our host cites and the national security services to ensure the security provided at the tournament is of the highest order, while existing security staff at all CWC19 host venues are receiving additional training in the build-up to the tournament.

There will be enhanced security plans at all our host venues with visible security measures taking place, as well as other non-visible measures happening throughout the tournament, inside and outside the stadium.
