VfL Wolfsburg and KVG agree on strategic partnership

Kenaf as a core element to the campaign

KVG is a leading manufacturer of renewable materials which are produced in Malaysia from kenaf, a plant found in Northern African and Mediterranean countries which can be transformed into fibres and oil and used to make paper and textiles amongst others. Since 2020, VfL has been supporting the United Nations’ “Race To Zero” campaign and has set itself the target of reducing all its greenhouse gas emissions – regardless whether they are produced directly or indirectly by football-club-related activities – to net zero by 2025. This is where KVG comes in, having recognised the potential of this modern raw material and with a desire to create awareness for it around the world.

The cooperation between the two parties will also give Malaysian youngsters the chance to improve their footballing skills, with VfL Wolfsburg’s expertise in that area being put to good and educational use as part of the KVG Football Corporate Youth Programme, which will provide training for talented Malaysian youngsters in sport in general and football in particular. The key element here will be the expertise and staff at the VfL Football School.
