It is a season of change for Manchester United. Some notable changes from field to the field are already in place. Manchester United changed Kit’s logo sponsorship agreement after their contract with Chevrolet ended. The prevailing software company, Team Viewer, keeps its name on the iconic kit. Adidas remains as the club’s kit supplier this season with bathroom products maker Kohler staying as the club’s shirt sleeve sponsor.
Man United has signed a global sponsorship agreement with Renewable Energy Group, a US manufacturer of renewable fuels. Renewable Energy Group produces eco-friendly, bio-based fuels that enable greenhouse gas reduction and create a cleaner world.
Under the Agreement, the parties will work together to raise awareness of the company’s biofuel products and promote positive environmental change among United’s global fan base. This club is one of the first clubs in football to launch a carbon reduction program in 2008.
Manchester United Chief Operating Officer Collette Roche said, “We are already an environmental leader among football clubs after 12 consecutive years of reduction in our greenhouse gas emissions.”
Dedicated to providing high-quality and easy-to-use renewable fuels, Renewable Energy Group recycles waste and by-product fats and oils into sustainable fuels. This enables organizations and individuals to become more environmentally friendly, without sacrificing quality or performance.
Manchester United was among the first football clubs in the world to launch a carbon reduction program in 2008 and since then has reduced annual emissions from its operations by 2,700 tonnes. The club will be seeking to build on this record through its new partnership with Renewable Energy Group.
The latest partnership with Renewable Energy Group has made the total additions to 20 for the ‘Global Partner’ tier. The tier includes Aeroflot, Apollo Tyres, Cadbury, Canon, Casillero del Diablo, Chevrolet, Chivas, DHL, Gulf, HCL, HTH, Konami, Marriot, Maui Jim, Melitta, Milly, Remington, Tag Heuer, and Visit Malta.
