Venice Boat Show

Green Mission

SNV Green Mission

As part of the management of Events, it is increasingly important to assess the impact they generate from a social, economic and environmental point of view.

In the context of Sustainable Event Management it is appropriate to take into account both waste management, transport and the management of resources and raw materials, but also the human resources involved in some way in the activities and services present. In line with these principles, promoting the social as well as economic and environmental value of the Venice Boat Show, Vela has confirmed the opportunity to implement and certify a system of Sustainable Management of the Event according to ISO 20121:2013 as in previous editions.

Through this initiative is promoted the opportunity to raise awareness, all people who, in various ways, are involved in this Event promoting the protection of the environmental, cultural and economic heritage of our territory.

Plastic Smart Cities

The City of Venice is the first in Italy to join the global Plastic Smart Cities initiative, promoted by WWF, which aims to combat plastic pollution in nature by 2030. This is to be achieved through the global implementation of best practices that prevent, reduce, and manage plastic as both a resource and waste, supporting the transition to a circular economy.

In line with the goals of the Plastic Smart Cities initiative, the experience gained through the certification of the Venice Boat Show according to the ISO 20121:2013 standard will be used to develop guidelines for other events within the municipality.

The main project partners are Gruppo Veritas S.p.A. and Gruppo AVM (Actv S.p.A. and Vela S.p.A.).
