A NORTH East-based consultancy has linked up with a London football club looking to do its bit to tackle climate crisis.

ClearVue is a specialist Gateshead-based consultancy helping businesses develop comprehensive strategies to achieve their net zero targets.

As part of a partnership with Watford FC, ClearVue will be conducting a full audit of the club’s carbon emissions to help it develop and implement a net zero roadmap to be delivered over the next decade.

The strategy will allow Watford to take practical measures that have a lasting and meaningful impact on their journey towards net zero.

Watford FC’s Tarang Panchal said: “It’s been hard to find a partner that not only aligns with our sustainability and net zero ambitions, but also has the expertise and knowledge to guide us on the net zero journey.

"We can’t stress enough the importance of finding the right partner, but with ClearVUE, we are confident we have the right partner to help us drive towards our longer-term objectives.”

Dan Smith, director of energy services at ClearVue, said: “At ClearVue our ambition is to mitigate the damage businesses inflict on our climate - and ultimately reduce their carbon emissions to preserve our planet and create a more sustainable future.

"Our mission is to provoke and inspire change for the better by enabling businesses through our technology - to understand how their operations and behaviour affect the climate.

“By enabling businesses to understand exactly how, where, and when they are emitting carbon, they can begin to address their impact on our planet.”

Paul O’Brien, Watford FC’s commercial director, added: We firmly believe that our partnership with ClearVUE will allow us to do our part in tackling the climate crisis, leaving the world a better place for future generations to come.”

* As well as offering technology that provides businesses with a consumption, carbon monitoring and accounting platform, ClearVue also offers expertise in audits, energy efficiency training, energy management, climate risk assessments, and emissions reporting legislation (ESOS, SECR). ClearVue’s consultancy services also help businesses devise long-term strategies, guiding them on the pathway to realising their net zero and sustainability ambitions.
