Cardiff Wales Stadium understands that it is critical to reduce any adverse environmental impacts to preserve both the stadium’s beautiful surroundings and to allow Glamorgan County Cricket Club to sustainably meet the needs of future generations.

The club’s appointed sustainability manager works hard to ensure the effective management of resources and our dedication to reducing our carbon footprint is reflected in our sustainability principles which are implemented throughout our stadium and embedded into our culture.

We provide general waste bins and mixed recycling receptacles on site which we encourage our spectators to use, and this is also reinforced to workforce, contractors and suppliers, who are also advised to consider their packaging in advance and to take any non-recyclable items when they leave the stadium. 

Our refreshments outlets utilise re-usable cups for spectator beverages and all food waste and glass waste is removed from kitchens and bars. We encourage spectators to bring their own bottles and use the water refill stations available around the stadium.
