Manchester City announces global partnership with Abu Dhabi’s Masdar

Masdar is focused on developing renewable energy projects across the Middle East and North Africa and broader international markets

Manchester City, an English Premier League club, has announced a new global partnership with Masdar.

Masdar is focused on developing renewable energy projects across the Middle East and North Africa and broader international markets, with a presence in almost 40 countries worldwide.

As part of the new agreement, Manchester City and Masdar will collaborate on a range of partnership activations, including the launch of a new global campaign aimed at raising awareness on the importance of climate action and mitigating climate change. The campaign will coincide with the Masdar hosted Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) scheduled to take place from January 15-19, 2022.

Stephan Cieplik, senior vice president of Global Partnership Sales, said, “At Manchester City, we have a commitment to grow sustainably and responsibly, whilst recognising that the Club has the ability to use its voice to encourage the communities we connect with to do more. In recent years, we have made significant progress within this area. We also know that a sustainable future can only be achieved by working together collaboratively with partners and fans, and we’re delighted to welcome Masdar as an Official Partner today to join us on this journey.”

Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, chief executive officer of Masdar, said, “Climate change is the defining issue of our time, which affects us all. By working together to raise awareness, educate and take action, we can turn this global challenge into an opportunity.”

Masdar is set to become a global clean energy powerhouse with the aim of expanding its project portfolio to over 50GW total capacity by 2030.

Meanwhile last month, Masdar signed an agreement with the Georgian Energy Development Fund (GEDF) to develop a solar photovoltaic (PV) power project in the country, with a capacity of as much as 100 megawatts (MW). The project, which will be jointly developed with the GEDF, will be Georgia’s largest solar power plant.

Masdar and the GEDF will jointly progress the development of the project, which is being carried out as part of a larger framework agreement signed with the GEDF this year to develop renewable energy projects in the Eurasian nation.
