We have some amazing partners who’ve helped us to achieve our goal to become the greenest football club in the world and whose values we share.
Ecotricity is Britain’s greenest energy company – the majority owner of FGR and our principal sponsor.
Ecotricity first got involved with FGR in August 2010 – and they’re the driving force behind turning us into the greenest football club in the world.
For Ecotricity, sport should be sustainable too – and a new channel of getting the green message across to a huge sporting audience.
We have the opportunity to create a truly sustainable football club; somewhere we can demonstrate all of our thinking and technology. Ecotricity is at the heart of those ambitions.
EESI Group Services
Based in Stonehouse, EESI is our stadium sponsor and a leading provider of specialist building services, including electrical installations, fire and security systems, air conditioning, heating and ventilation, data cable networking, technical testing and 24/7 support.
The company was founded in 1994 by Mike Gardiner. It is a local business and one with a great ethos: Derek Jarman, the Managing Director, has been with EESI since day one and many others have also been at the company for many years.
Grundon is the UK’s leading family-owned supplier of waste management. The company has great green credentials and shares our ambition to build a sustainable future.
Grundon is also helping us to achieve our ambition to recycle 100% of our waste!
Our relationship with Quorn started in 2015 when we first introduced Quorn ingredients to the menu. Soon after, our Q Pie was commended at the British Pie Awards, and we picked up the Menu of the Year award from the Sport and Leisure Catering Magazine.
Quorn are an essential part of the matchday experience – and by working with them, we’re helping to get the sustainable food message out to more and more people every season.
Since FGR became vegan, our message has reached an audience of almost two billion people. Now that’s getting the message out there!
Not many football clubs have a skull and crossbones insignia on their strip – and we have Sea Shepherd to thank for that.
The striking logo that features on the back of our home and away strips is the logo of the conservation society founded in 1977 by Paul Watson.
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
They use innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas.
Their work is truly inspirational – and we think it’s awesome to see their name on the back of FGR shirts.
"Hello, we're innocent. We’re here to crush fruit, sell smoothies, feed the world’s hungry, clamp down on climate change, and maybe name some football stadiums while we’re at it.
We started innocent in 1999 after selling our smoothies at a local music festival. Did we ever think that 21 years later we’d be sponsoring the world’s most sustainable football club? Yes. Yes we did. That’s been the plan all along. We’ve actually been astro-turfing our office floors for the last two decades in anticipation of this moment. (The fact that astroturf is cheaper and more durable than carpet is completely irrelevant.)
There’s lots of stuff we like. Sustainability. Football. Healthy living. Football. Engaging in responsible business practices to ensure that we’re earning enough cash to pay the water bill whilst not hurting the planet in the process. Football. At Forest Green Rovers, you really are bang in the middle of our “Favourite Things” Venn diagram.
We love the way you lot go about things. You stand up for what you believe in, change stuff for the better, and challenge others to do the same. That’s why we’re Forest Green fans. All the biggest European clubs have been knocking on our door, begging us to name their stadiums, but we weren’t interested. Why would we want to partner with the second most sustainable club in the world when we could partner with the first? Also we’re absolute suckers for a bit of bright green zebra print."
