Examples of this are measures such as adjusting the intensity of light and temperature to the different time phases; reducing the energy use of the stands; minimising waste and its selective collection; using sustainable elements in signage and development awareness campaigns on these issues, and others that have an impact on the environment, such as public transport by attendees.

The Hotel Gran Bilbao transforms its textile waste into new aprons


Our partner, Hotel Gran Bilbao, committed to looking after the the environment and people and has gone one step further by transforming its old bedspreads and sheets into new aprons for its staff. An initiative that reuses textile waste, avoiding the waste of 44,000 litres of water and the emission of 110 kg of CO2eq.


It is the first hotel in the Basque Country to collaborate with the circular economy startup Deleite Wear, which, using a method before recycling, upcycling or suprarecycling, does not process or produce new fabric but rather sanitises and eliminates the deteriorated areas of existing fabric. It gives it a second life by making uniforms and work clothes in perfect condition.


As for the already worn-out waste, Deleite Wear has a pilot recycling project underway to avoid using new resources as far as, as they stand for over half of the pollution generated by the textile sector. This startup also works from a social dimension, as all products are made in social insertion workshops in Spain.

Bilbao Dendak has a pilot project underway in collaboration with Elika Fundazioa to reduce food waste


Nine retail and catering companies in Bilbao, members of Bilbao Dendak, are participating in a pilot project for the reduction and management of food surpluses. The project is an initiative in collaboration with the Elika Food Security Foundation, backed by the Basque Government and forms part of the Basque Strategy against Food Waste Basque Green Deal – Euskadiko Itun Berdea. Other partners of the Bilbao Convention Bureau, such as Oreka Circular Economy, which acts as a facilitator of the process, and Iruña Catering and Yandiola restaurant are participating to reduce and improve the management of surpluses in their respective businesses.
