Creating Employment

> An average of 90 permanent employees

> Regular creation of jobs indirectly: over 100

professionals in various technical fields


57

CCIB's activity 2005-2012

Committed to responsibility

> Because the events industry has a very significant environmental

impact (displacement, etc.).

> Because of the particularly intensive creation of waste (exhibition

materials, posters, etc.) that it generates.

> Because Barcelona, as a global destination city, is a leader in this sector

(Second in the world ranking)

Since its inception in 2004, the CCIB has always held that its

management should involve all aspects of sustainability and social

responsibility at a fundamental level.


58

CCIB's activity 2005-2012

Committed to responsibility

When the CCIB was built as part of the proposed urban renewal of

the waterfront, five key points were taken into account :

> Environmental integration and the urban landscape

> Architectural features

> Water management

> Energy management

> Waste management


59

CCIB's activity 2005-2012

Committed to responsibility

Today, all of this is a reality in the CCIB, as a result

of its own policy of responsibility, and

therefore, of environmental sustainability:

> Selection of waste at source and transfer to an on-site

temporary transfer station

> Placement of waste selection bins throughout the site

> Energy Efficiency Policy

> Event carbon footprint calculation to measure CO 2

emissions the clients that hold their events at the CCIB


60

CCIB's activity 2005-2012

Committed to responsibility

To this end, since 2009, the CCIB has been committed to

minimizing its 'carbon footprint’: it compensates for the CO 2

emissions resulting from the company’s activity by purchasing

carbon credits (CER) associated with sustainable projects,

endorsed by the United Nations Framework Convention on

Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Facilities at the Mamak Landfill Waste, in Ankara. The goal of the project is to compensate for the CO 2 generated by the CCIB in 2011.

for transparent and on-going dialogue with the full

spectrum of the company’s stakeholders.”
