Baleària and the Pilota Valenciana Foundation have renewed this Thursday their annual agreement through which the shipping company collaborates in the promotion of indigenous sport. As a novelty, it highlights the incorporation of sustainable management and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) when organizing sports tournaments and championships.
President Baleària, Adolfo Utor, and José María Cataluña, vice president of the Pilota Valenciana, have signed the new document at the offices of the maritime station Baleària Port, in Dénia.
The shipping company and the Fundació Baleària, an organization that is in charge of managing agreements in favor of the sustainable development of the territories in which the company operates, undertake to help the sports entity to achieve said responsible management. And this fact will materialize, for example, by eliminating the plastic of events and competitions.
The first tournament in which this will be effective will be the 'Individual Campionat', the queen of this sport, which brings the best player of the year. Fundació Baleària will be in charge of, among other things, providing water bottles packaged in cardboard briks and glasses made of biodegradable corn fiber.
For its part, the Fundació de la Pilota undertakes to promote the Baleària brand in the most important championships it organizes, which are held throughout the Valencian territory. These are events that are regaining their importance and recognition in recent years.
