“We are most pleased to team up with Paris Saint-Germain,” said Valerie Bernis, executive vice President of GDF SUEZ.
“This means of course that we are partnering with a very fine international brand, but through this partnership we are also promoting important values for us– community involvement, gender equality, and corporate social responsibility,” he added.
“Paris-Saint-Germain is delighted and proud to commit to a three-year partnership with GDF SUEZ, whose ambitions and values we share and inspire us every day: dedication to performance, the respect of everyone and the sense of responsibility.”
Jean-Claude Blanc, Paris Saint-Germain deputy CEO, said: “Like GDF SUEZ, our concern is to bring energy and enjoyment to everyone who recognizes themselves in us.”
