The BBVA Open Internacional Valencia Tournament, thanks to Anabel Medina and Tennium, will bring the best women’s tennis to the capital of the Turia, which from September 12 to 19 will host at the Sporting Club de Tenis a trophy with prizes of up to $80,000 for its participants that will become the second most important in Spain in the women’s section.
The tournament’s philosophy is based on values such as integration, with exhibitions for blind players, the promotion of female talent and sustainability. The latter will be precisely one of the aspects with which, in collaboration with its main sponsor, it will become the first trophy in the calendar to offset its entire carbon footprint.
Global Omnium and Climate Trade will be the two companies that, together with the organization and through BBVA, will establish a milestone in the ITF circuit.
The director of the Eastern Territory of BBVA, David Conde, recalled that the entity ‘is a bank focused on the purpose of making available to all, the opportunities of this new era. And our commitment to sustainability is possibly one of the clearest ways to materialize this objective. Our 2025 commitment to contribute to the challenges derived from the Paris Agreement is more valid than ever and is not only reflected in our internal and external processes but also in initiatives such as these’.
Juan Luis Pozo, director of corporate sustainability at Global Omnium, added that ‘Valencia was the first city in the world to certify its carbon footprint and one of the initiatives that adheres to this action is the BBVA International Open of Valencia. For his part, Climate Trade CEO Francisco Benedito explained that the one in the capital of the Turia ‘joins other projects we are already leading in countries such as Brazil where we are helping entire families to live by recycling waste’.
The BBVA Open Internacional de Valencia has the support of its main sponsor, which makes its growth possible together with the Diputación de Valencia, Ayuntamiento de Valencia, Generalitat Valenciana, Trinidad Alfonso Foundation, Volvo, Font Vella, Dormitienda, Sanitas or Arroz Dacsa among others.
