Mitsubishi Electric has become the official main partner for Wigan Warriors Community Foundation and its ‘I’m a Green Warrior’ project.
‘I’m a Green Warrior’ is a campaign to advance the growth of a greener community in Wigan. The Warriors Foundation is engaging with hundreds of schools, colleges and businesses to get involved in the local renewable energy agenda.
Wigan Warriors director of community, Wayne Joyce, said: “It is fantastic to gain the support of such a prestigious global company as Mitsubishi Electric. We are very proud of the Wigan Warriors brand and it’s a great association for us to be working with a company who shares the same pride and values as we do.
“The partnership will allow us to extend our current delivery and help us take a further step in our ambition to become a world renowned foundation.”
Martin Fahey, who leads Mitsubishi Electric’s Greenway Gateway environmental initiative, said: “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.
“Our approach is all about engaging with people to start the energy dialogue and with Wigan, we are linking with a very strong and high quality brand that obviously means a lot to the community.”
