Towards Zero Impact
In order to reduce the environmental impact of our trade shows and make more sustainable events, at Alimentaria and HOSTELCO we carry out different actions.
We are aware that it is necessary to implement sustainable measures to fight climate change aiming to set an example for our sector.
Towards Zero Impact (TZI) is a project that contributes to the implementation of all kinds of measures in relation to sustainability, both on an environmental and social level, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs set an agenda of goals for the year 2030 and aim to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.
Zero Waste and Recycling
Zero Waste is an initiative that aims to generate less waste during events and its recycling. Among the actions developed in this area, we highlight:
CO2 compensation and reduction
By creating evaluation criteria, companies that have implemented actions and good practices in the field of sustainability are identified. These exhibitors will be identified with the “Sustainable Company” label during the trade show, in the Exhibitors and Products Catalogue and in the Visitor’s Guide.
In the fight against food waste and for the recovery of the surplus of the trade show, we reaffirm our collaboration with the Fundació Banc dels Aliments. Their volunteers will be promoting their supply programme, designed to manage the stocks of food from the agro-food industry that is consumable but not marketable, and which can be distributed to people in a precarious food situation.
