Those responsible for the organization want to stand out, outside the undoubted sporting event that generated the presence of the best European players, with ecological and sustainable side of this competition, which will be seen through television broadcasts in more than one hundred countries around the world.

Iñigo Aramburu, tournament promoter, notes that “There can not be a more appropriate place for an ecological initiative than Terramar Golf Club, which faces the Mediterranean Sea, in a town very committed to sustainability and the environment, without going any further with their project Clean Beaches 2030 or seal Biosphere, a sustainable tourism certification that is internationally recognized”.

"All these aspects," continues Iñigo Aramburu- "make Sitges is one of the most beautiful and impressive stops on the calendar of the Ladies European Tour and it was listed by the players last year as one of the best locations on the circuit”.

Meanwhile, Tomás González, acting director of Club de Golf Terramar, stresses that “The field is irrigated with reclaimed water from the Sitges-Sant Pere de Ribes treatment plant, culminating the project after several years of administrative procedures. Thus a small percentage of reclaimed water that went into the sea, we get it and give it tertiary treatment to make it suitable for irrigation”, apart from using renewable energy for certain services.

In this context of widespread awareness, both participating golfers and spectators who come to watch the tournament will also contribute their bit for the sake of sustainability.

To do so they encourage journeys which are made by bike, taking advantage of the proximity of the golf course´s accommodations, using electric vehicles wherever possible to address those needs that require the transport of packages of significant size.

Additionally, thanks to the involvement of some partners of Terramar, players may choose to stay in private homes and live tournament week in a different way, a pioneering initiative in Spain that surely will generate unique experiences both for players and partners hosts.

And within the Terramar Golf Club, recycling will be pushed for all types of materials, installing various containers at different points to be effective.

Likewise, plastic cups are replaced by biodegradable ones, made from 100% plant materials, while in the field of catering, similar products will be used.

Finally, the club will be reduced to the maximum paper consumption, leveraging the use of technology, promoting the need for information to be covered by electronic devices.
