Gloucester plumbing and heating manufacturer teams up with Forest Green Rovers


Forest Green Rovers has teamed up with a central heating systems product manufacturer Adey, a manufacturer which makes products to protect household central heating systems, reducing carbon emissions and saving money on energy bills.

It’s a great match with Forest Green Rovers as the world’s first and only vegan football club and the first to be certified carbon neutral by the United Nations, and Adey’s innovative products helping protect household central heating systems, reducing carbon emissions, and ultimately helping consumers save money on energy bills.

Adey will help Forest Green Rovers to continue to work with schools, community groups and vulnerable people to not only help raise awareness of the impact of climate change, but other social issues too such as mental health and loneliness. Adey will help deliver and support some of the club’s initiatives through volunteering or helping spread the message about how to reduce carbon emissions.

Matthew Webber, Adey CEO, said: “This is a hugely exciting partnership for us and the whole team is looking forward to working with the Club and getting involved as much as possible. There is a lot of synergy with Adey and the work FGR Community is doing. Not only around sustainability and carbon reduction, but acknowledging the impact organisations can, and should, now be having on their communities and the people that live there.

“Like FGR, we’re a Gloucestershire business with a global reach, and while the sectors we operate in couldn’t be more different, we share a passion to create a more sustainable planet to live on and support the community. The home and buildings are the second largest contributor to carbon emissions in the world. Working alongside plumbing and heating engineers across the globe, our products are used to improve the efficiency of central heating systems, helping to reduce the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere, extending the life of boilers and saving the homeowner money in energy bills. Our aim is to work with FGR Community to spread the message and ultimately have a positive impact on people’s lives.

“We are delighted that Adey wish to partner with FGR Community,” said Sarah Urquhart, Head of FGR Community. “Their investment and support will make a significant difference in allowing us to extend our reach and sustain our programmes. In doing so we will be able to knock on more doors, spend time talking and supporting local families, visit older residents and extend matchday invitations. We are really looking forward to working together.”
