Osasuna invites fans to add carbon credits to club purchases
Spanish LaLiga football club Osasuna will offer its fans the chance to buy carbon credits as an add-on to sales of merchandise and even match tickets under a new partnership with Brazilian climate-focused start-up Moss.
Supporters will be able to purchase credits through the club’s official app and a dedicated website against purchases of a range of products.
The initiative is part of a wide-ranging partnership that will also feature Moss measuring Osasuna’s emissions generated by administrative and sporting activities and then offsetting through conservation bonds in the Amazon rainforest.
Osasuna, which currently sits 11th in the Spanish top flight, said that it would be transparent about the inventory calculations and the number of carbon bonds used to compensate for the club’s actions.
“We are a club with a strong social commitment and preserving the environment is part of it."
“With this initiative, Osasuna becomes the first European club to support the conservation of the largest and most important forest in the world, the Amazon,” said Luis Felipe Adaime, Chief Executive and Founder of Moss. “Our commitment goes beyond emission compensation; it is a comprehensive sustainability plan that involves everyone, from fans to the community of Pamplona and Navarra.”
Osasuna and Moss will also connect with other Spanish companies and sponsors to discuss environmental sustainability.
Osasuna President Luis Sabalza added: “We are a club with a strong social commitment and preserving the environment is part of it. This partnership with Moss will allow us to neutralise all our carbon emissions and thus be a pioneering club in Spain. We hope that this alliance will help more and more clubs to follow our example.”
