Greenalia reaffirms its collaboration with the Coruña Basketball Club by financing 20 scholarships for children’s teams
The company Greenalia reissues its collaboration with the Coruña Basketball Club, an entity that will pay, for the third consecutive year, twenty training scholarships aimed at minors at risk of exclusion. Through this initiative, the renewable energy producer will pay this club from A Coruña for the expenses derived from the training in the club’s sports practice (registration, equipment and fees) of these students.
With this initiative, Greenalia, through the Greenalia Foundation for Energy Transition, wants to continue doing its part in supporting socio-educational and social inclusion plans in those territories in which it operates and, in this objective, sport has a important integrative aspect. This was ratified today by the Director of Corporate Development, Beatriz Mato, and the entity’s Vice President, Juan Carlos Fernández Herrero, at a signing ceremony held at the Palacio de los Deportes.
As explained by the director of Sustainability and Corporate Development, Beatriz Mato, “for us, it is a satisfaction to be able to reaffirm our commitment to this entity, since the principles of basketball and of this club are those that we also practice from our company. Values such as camaraderie, the spirit of sacrifice or fair play that are so well established in this sport are also the cornerstones of our corporate policy”.
From Básquet Coruña they value and appreciate the effort made by Greenalia so that minors of different ages who are in situations of risk of exclusion can continue enjoying and developing their favorite sports activity.
In the words of its vice president, Juan Carlos Fernández, “for Basketball Coruña the renewal of this agreement with Greenalia is a great joy. For the third consecutive year, this link will allow many boys and girls, in vulnerable situations, to have the opportunity to enjoy and train in basketball from the base categories”.
Básquet Coruña, founded in 1996, is the benchmark club in the city and its area of influence. The nearly 700 minors between its own and external schools make Básquet Coruña the largest quarry in all of Galicia. A sports practice that the club complements with numerous activities, always within a framework of social awareness towards the values of sport and healthy habits.
Greenalia, based in A Coruña and active in Europe and the USA, is an independent energy producer exclusively using renewable technologies. The organization is present in five technologies: Onshore and Offshore Wind Power, Photovoltaic Solar, Storage and Biomass where it is vertically integrated from the origin of the raw material to the production of electrical energy.
