Arsenal Football Club said it would power its stadium with renewable energy produced from wasted food and solar panels in a bid to reduce greenhouse gas pollution.

The North London club signed a contract with Octopus Energy Ltd. to source energy from anaerobic digestion plants and solar farms. It is offsetting carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels.
