Team fc have been Carbon Neutral for 14 years

Team fc have identified one such opportunity – “Seagrass”

Seagrasses are the unsung heroes of our coastal seas. As much as 92% of the UK’s seagrass has been lost, restoring it is vital for ocean health. Seagrass has huge benefits. It can protect coasts, improve water filtration and plays the following important roles:

Fisheries Support

Twenty percent of the world’s biggest fisheries are supported by seagrass meadows as fish nurseries.

Biodiversity Support

Fifty species of fish live in or visit UK seagrass, supporting thirty times more animals than nearby habitat.

Fight Climate Change

Seagrass meadows store carbon as effectively as forests. 400kg of carbon dioxide per hectare, per year.

Team fc are actively looking at ways we can support this vital initiative
