This year, the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit is joining the KiSS Barcelona (Keep it Shiny & Sustainable) environmental initiative as part of the KiSS project promoted by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) in keeping with its environmental management policy. The aim of the project is to raise awareness among all parties involved in the world of motorcycling and reduce the environmental impact of sports events though appropriate environmental management with, as the main focus, the management of waste produced by the public and the organisation.
Among other socially responsible actions, the Circuit, which has been certified compliant with ISO 14001-2004 standard for environmental management since 2008 and was honoured with the 2012 FIM Environmental Award, is taking up the challenge of Kiss Barcelona to promote sustainable mobility and good practices in management of waste.
KiSS Barcelona will carry out a number of awareness-raising activities during the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya de MotoGP, as set out below:
The KiSS Barcelona project, in which rider and FIM Environmental Ambassador Marc Márquez will be taking an active part, has received the support of the Barcelona Municipality, the companies Ecoembes and Valoriza and consultancies SBA and ISR.
