England Rugby League And Energetics-Energy Collaborate For An Environmentally Sustainable Future

By Taruka Srivastav | May 7, 2021

The Rugby Football League reaffirmed its commitment to an environmentally sustainable future via a new partnership between England Rugby League and energy sector consultancy energetics-energy

It’s a partnership that will also benefit supporters and clubs, through a special ‘Support the sport you love’ offer to fans and bespoke assistance for clubs to help them reduce energy usage and head to carbon neutral. The energetics-energy logo will feature on the playing shorts of the Men, Women and Wheelchair England kits in 2021.  

energetics-energy work with businesses and organisations nationwide as they strive to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions in line with government and international targets. Rugby League clubs at all levels, as well as the RFL itself, will be able to work with B2B specialists at energetics-energy to future-proof themselves against the inevitable rising costs of energy prices. 

The North East-based consultancy also has a unique offer to Rugby League’s domestic consumers – switch supply via energetics-energy and a portion of the profit will go straight back into Rugby League. 

RFL Chief Executive, Ralph Rimmer, says: “This is a partnership full of potential for the whole of Rugby League, and we’re delighted to have energetics-energy on board with us as a trusted partner and an ethical business.  

“Through England Rugby League we are setting ourselves the highest standards on the pitch and across the RFL we are setting ourselves the same high standards off it. Environmental sustainability is increasingly at the heart of our decision-making and the actions we take. energetics-energy will help us on our journey as we seek to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and encourage our partners – including clubs at all levels of the game – to embed environmental sustainability within their own activities. 

“England fans too can benefit from our partnership with energetics-energy. They’ll be able to take advantage of a specially reduced rate when switching utilities with energetics-energy and be entered into exclusive offers that will be announced prior to the World Cup. Plus, a portion of the profit will go straight back into Rugby League through the ‘Support the sport you love’ initiative. It’s a win-win for Rugby League.” 

energetics-energy Partnerships Director, Kirstie Wallace, says: “We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen as England Rugby League’s trusted Energy Partner and it is an honour to be a part of the Rugby League World Cup 2021, sponsoring the England Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair teams with the opening game taking place in our hometown.

Our partnership will benefit everyone within the England Rugby League community; sponsors, partners, clubs, fans and the environment as we focus on facilitating energy efficiency and helping everyone to reduce their energy consumption and go green. We have committed to investing back into the sport at all levels, from grass roots up and to be a transparent and ethical partner.”

energetics-energy Director of Energy Services, Gillian Smith, says: “England Rugby League’s sustainability agenda fits perfectly with our objective to help businesses and organisations on their Net Zero journey and embed carbon reduction strategies to protect the environment and drive down their energy costs. 

Most businesses are aware of the need to head to carbon neutral, but they don’t know where or how to start the process. energetics-energy is here to help, guide and support everyone to achieve maximum energy efficiency.”
