Now, carbon-neutral cricket!


Posted: Apr 09, 2010 at 1553 hrs IST

Mohali: The Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) will host first-ever carbon-neutral match when Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians take on each other in Indian Premier League encounter here tonight.

The PCA had aimed to become the first carbon-neutral cricket body in the country and had roped in a United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) representative for suggesting ways to reduce the carbon emission at its sports facilities here, a PCA official said.

The PCA had approached the UNEP for helping them in becoming zero carbon emitting cricket body by providing the Association know how and other means in making the sports facilities green.

A representative of UNEP, who was associated with FIFA in reducing carbon emission had conducted an audit of the PCA's sports facilities in terms of their carbon emission and then recommend steps to be carried out for making them a carbon neutral body.

Under this move, the UNEP had suggested ways to collect and separate waste, install a rain harvesting system, recycling of water, setting up solar power panels to reduce consumption of fuel etc.
