The Valencia Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships 2023 is presented as a sustainable competition. The world event that will bring together the best gymnasts on the planet between 23 and 27 August in the Valencian capital, will have an action plan focused on this purpose and supported by all the organizing entities, as well as the main sponsors who will make a major effort to reduce their environmental impact as much as possible.
The presentation, which took place in the Salón de Cristal of the Valencia City Hall, was attended by Alejandra Quereda, Lourdes Mohedano, Artemi Gavezou, Sandra Aguilar and Elena López, winners of the silver medal in Rio'16 and ambassadors of this championship. The official poster and the medals that will be awarded to the best athletes, both individually and as a whole, were also unveiled at the event.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
The Royal Spanish Gymnastics Federation and Iberdrola España assume the challenge and commitment of organizing this World Championship in a clean way. An event that transcends the sporting and attracts the attention of spectators and media globally, so it seeks sustainability by offsetting the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere, "we are aware of our role as a reference for new generations and therefore we must take an active and exemplary position," said Jesus Carballo, President of the RFEG.
A strategic plan that will measure the footprint generated by each supplier involved, in order to subsequently compensate it in favor of the natural environment. This pioneering initiative will be possible thanks to Iberdrola Spain, one of the main sponsors; "Iberdrola has focused on giving greater impetus and visibility to the sport practiced by women, their athletes and their achievements... Therefore, we had to be at this important event, and in the best way we know how, which is through sustainability" says Noelia Florín, head of sports sponsorship of Iberdrola Spain.
