As Europe’s leading health, wellness and fitness group, we have been helping families lead healthy and active lives for more than 40 years. Doing the right thing by our members, our team and the communities in which we operate is integral to our success as a sustainable business.
We have taken some very significant steps in this area, demonstrating our commitment to the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles. At David Lloyd Clubs, we create a culture for our team and members that motivates everyone to play an active part in the community inside and outside of our clubs.

Our 2030 carbon net zero commitment

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at David Lloyd Clubs and our target to become net zero by 2030 underpins our environmental programmes.

  • Net Zero means that across all of our clubs, we add no more greenhouse gases than we remove
  • We include emissions that we are directly responsible for, and we go further than this by also including emissions that occur throughout our supply chain activity
  • To achieve this, we will ‘electrify’ as much as we possibly can through deployment of renewable technologies, and then any remaining emissions will be eliminated from our supply chain

Doing the right thing by our members, our employees, and the communities in which we operate is something we are passionate about. A crucial part of our community responsibility is our work with numerous charities. We enable our Clubs to support charities and good causes that have meaning for our members and team members. This takes place on a local and national level, and features a diverse range of activities.

We're proud to be one of the founding contributors to Change Please, selling their award winning coffee in our clubs since February 2020. Every cup of Change Please coffee sold goes towards helping people who are experiencing homelessness, offering them a living wage job, housing, training and onwards employment opportunities.

In 2021, we established an ESG Committee to consider climate and other social and environmental risks and opportunities to improve the Group’s sustainability. Our key goal remains constant; that doing the right thing by our members, our team and the communities in which we operate is vital to our success as a sustainable business. We are equally committed to actions and initiatives that support our other principles. This includes doing our utmost towards combating climate change by reducing our clubs’ waste and using sustainable raw materials.
