Environmental programme

We are committed to reducing the impact of our business on the environment, both in our offices and at our events.

Drought in Barcelona

Catalonia has declared a state of emergency as it faces its worst drought on record. As guests in the city we take our responsibilities seriously and we are in close consultation with Fira on precautionary measures.

We encourage attendees to minimise their water usage by:

  • Showering rather than using the bath.
  • Turning off water while brushing teeth.
  • Reusing towels and linen rather than requesting daily replacements.
*What is the environmental programme?*

What is the environmental programme?

Our environmental programme focuses on five areas:

  • Energy
  • Production and waste
  • Food and waste food
  • Logistics
  • Travel and accommodation

These areas have been designed to align with six of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) - Affordable and clean energy, Climate action, Responsible consumption and production, Zero hunger, Reduced inequalities and Industry, innovation and infrastructure.

How are we doing it?


Barcelona is proud to be a Biosphere World Class Destination. Since 2011, the city holds the Biosphere responsible tourism certificate in line with the international criteria of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.
