UK: Mitsubishi Electric has become the official main partner for rugby league club Wigan Warriors’ Community Foundation.

The three-year deal also sees the company become a sponsor of the Foundation’s new I’m a Green Warrior project, which is designed to advance the growth of a greener community and a sustainable future in Wigan. The Warriors’ Foundation wants to be the spearhead in engaging hundreds of schools, colleges and businesses along with thousands of individuals to get involved in the renewable energy agenda.

“It is fantastic to gain the support of such a prestigious global company as Mitsubishi Electric,” commented Wayne Joyce, Wigan Warriors director of community. “We are very proud of the Wigan Warriors brand and its a great association for us to be working with a company who shares the same pride and values as we do,” he added.

Working with the I’m a Green Warrior project, the partnership will help to engage the community in the green agenda and educate young people about the benefits of sustainability.

The partnership will also allow the Foundation to further expand its existing delivery programme as well as pioneering new projects and having a positive impact on more people in the community than ever before.

“We are delighted to be part of the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation and I’m a Green Warrior project as it matches our own commitment to getting everyone to look at how they can reduce energy use,” explained Martin Fahey, who leads Mitsubishi Electrics Greenway Gateway environmental initiative.
