Energy Efficient Solutions Group are delighted to be sponsoring Reading FC in hopes of achieving the mutual vision to reduce global warming and take action to reach net zero and reduce carbon emissions. EES Group have agreed upon a 3-year sponsorship deal to help Reading FC continue with their sustainability journey.
As one of the UK’s leading suppliers and installers energy efficient solutions, we will help Reading FC to harness the benefits of the latest innovative products in the renewable market to further continue on this path by providing the club with energy efficient solutions to reduce grid dependence, cut carbon emissions and help to save the environment.
In order to attain these objectives, we will be working closely with Reading FC to replace their old lighting with energy efficient LED lights and aim to reduce their grid dependency by introducing solar PV into their estate.
Paul Daly, CEO, expressed, ‘We are delighted to become one of Reading FC’s key partners in helping them on their sustainability drive. I am looking forward to a successful long-term relationship on this journey and wish them every success for the upcoming season.’
Reading FC have shared values with the EES Group and have already begun their journey of sustainability by introducing their new home kit with a stripe design, that represents the increasing average global temperatures over the last 150 years since the club was founded. This design was inspired by the stripes found on Reading University campus. The club questioned the university on the meaning behind the stripes, and once they realised, they represented the temperatures over the years, they decided to incorporate this design onto their new kit. The new shirts are also made from recycled plastic bottles, so also contribute to helping the environment as they can be recycled in the future. Reading and the university have also partnered to try and minimise the club’s environmental impact and improve its sustainability.
Head of Commercial at Reading Football Club, Tim Kilpatrick, said: “This partnership is perfect for a club aiming to take small steps towards achieving a brighter future for our planet. With the launch of our new home kit this week, we have started the climate conversation. Now we hope this partnership with another local organisation will help us play our part in taking some action.”
