Getafe C.F wins the Platinum Laurel Award thanks to the partnership with Allcot

On September 24th 2014, Getafe C. F., the Spanish La Liga football team, was awarded the Platinum Laurel Award for being one of the first clubs in Europe to become sustainable through carbon neutral certification.

The award was picked up by David Torres, the ALLCOT Sports Project Manager and Alberto Heras, Director of Marketing of Getafe CF.

The Awards are given for excellence in the areas of business, the arts, culture and philanthropy.

The international jury considered a number of nominations and selected Getafe as a winner due to their pioneering sustainability initiative, developed with ALLCOT. The initiative demonstrates how top-tier professional sports teams can operate in an environmentally sustainable manner whilst growing their brand.

At the event, hosted at the Palace Hotel in Madrid, further awards were presented to Princess Beatrice of Orleans, Baroness Thyssen-Bornemisza, Lorenzo Quin, David Stein, Samary Fernández, and Francisco de Borbón, among others.
