Sanna Mansson started this petition to WImbledon Tennis Championships (AELTC)

2019 is the year the world woke up to our current Climate Emergency.

My name is Sanna, I am 18 years old and I have grown up in Wimbledon and attended the local primary and secondary schools. The Wimbledon Tennis Championships are on my doorstep and have always been an exciting and important time for the local area. However in light of recent climate awareness, I have become increasingly concerned about the impact the courtesy car fleet has on the air quality in the local area and demand that they make a change.

In 2018, the courtesy car fleet of 170 vehicles included just 10 electric vehicles (EV's). In 2019, the total number of EV's within the fleet remained at 10 !

Day by day, global corporates, national and local governments, businesses and individuals across the world, are acknowledging that we must change the way we live, work and play, in order to minimise our impact on this one earth we inhabit.

The Wimbledon Championships are a global brand and hold a special place in the hearts of millions. They set many standards, have a powerful reach and have the power to influence, yet they seem to have gone backwards this year.

We do not need the air pollution, nor the carbon emissions - you can and must do better.

I demand, and implore, that the All England Lawn & Tennis Club, committ to employing a 100% EV fleet for the 2020 Championships.
