United for Sustainability
In order to reduce the environmental impact of our trade shows and make more sustainable events, at Barcelona Wine Week 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.

Recycling of glass containers
During the fair, ECOVIDRIO will collect empty bottles to ensure their recycling. A team of ECOVIDRIO professionals will regularly pass by the stands to collect glass bottles that are empty of liquid.
Recycling glass is a key element in the fight against climate change, giving a new life to these containers and minimizing the emission of CO2 in the manufacturing process, saving energy and avoiding the growth of landfills.
ECOVIDRIO, the non-profit organization responsible for managing the recycling of glass packaging waste in Spain, collected more than 12 tons of glass packaging waste during the last edition of the Barcelona Wine Week, the equivalent of more than 27,000 bottles of wine.
Recycling of corks
Recycling containers for the collection of corks will be located all over the venue.
Our objective is to give a second life to the used corks by collecting them, crushing them and mixing them with glue to use them in tree surrounds and playground pavements.
This circular economy project, called ALCORKE, is promoted by the Catalan Cork Institute Foundation and the Catalan Waste Agency.
Zero Plastic is an initiative that focuses on the reduction and elimination of all types of single-use plastics throughout the venue:
CO2 compensation and reduction
