Manchester United and Abengoa have announced a global partnership which will see the club enhance and develop its sustainable business practices.

Abengoa, founded in 1941, has operations in five continents and employs over 25,000 employees globally. Abengoa is fully committed to developing technological solutions that will allow our world to become more sustainable.

Abengoa will identify, advise and implement sustainable ways in which Manchester United can save resources and reduce waste. As one of the UK’s most environmentally conscious sports clubs, this new agreement enables Manchester United to further develop its sustainability credentials.

Manchester United selected Abengoa to help the Club fulfil its sustainable practice objectives and demonstrates its commitment to sustainability. Abengoa is renowned for being innovative and its global reputation and unparalleled expertise in solar energy, renewable fuels and desalinated water make them the ideal advisories to partner with.

Manchester United Group Managing Director, Richard Arnold comments:

“Manchester United is proud of all the work we have been doing over many years to meet the guidelines set in our sustainability policies; however we recognise how much more can be done to become even more environmentally-sound as a business. Through our partnership with Abengoa, we hope to learn more about how we can reach these goals and will seek their advice and assistance in implementing cutting edge technology that will help us become more sustainable.

“With a global fanbase of 659 million followers we have a huge audience to communicate with and we hope this new partnership will inspire them to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle.”

Its example is an excellent opportunity to show the world of football and its millions of supporters, including the next generation of sports fans, the principle of responsible and sustainable management of our energy and environment."
