MOVING A STEP FURTHER IN SUSTAINABILITY
The Valencia Conference Centre‘s team is moving a step further in sustainability and is currently focusing on strengthening the Centre’s environmental commitment by aligning all our operations with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDAs). We are ready to contribute to the international 2030 Agenda agreement, which advocates universal social wellbeing.
Coinciding with World Environment Day, the Valencia Conference is launching the SDG Project, a global initiative, which covers all areas of the building’s activities. The Project will help Valencia to progress in its smart city strategy; to take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects, and to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
Currently, sustainable investments represent 40% of the total and it is estimated that they also save approximately 1 million kWh in annual energy consumption. These reductions avoid the emission of 707 tonnes in CO2 eq., the approximate amount emitted into the atmosphere by 150 vehicles on the roads in one year. The project is part of the Centre’s Sustainability Plan, which already has a number of milestones under its belt. These include the installation of the photovoltaic roof in 2008, which has already generated more than 3 million kWh of clean energy.
The Centre’s team, together with its suppliers and customers, is implementing sustainable, responsible activities that promote the cultural, economic and social development of Valencia and strengthen its commitment to the environment so as to build a better future for all of us. A sustainable and more inclusive future.
