Choni Fernandez Veciana leads the areas of procurement, logistics and corporate responsibility at PortAventura World. She joined the company in 2007 and holds a Diploma in Business Sciences and a degree in economics from the Faculty of Economics of the University of Oviedo. Fernandez Veciana is a key player in PortAventura’s efforts to minimise its environmental footprint.
In 2020, PortAventura World became the first carbon-neutral theme park. The attraction will now offset 100 percent of the direct emissions generated. Its programmes include a large solar energy plant, plastic elimination targets and the first carbon-neutral hotel, Colorado Creek. PortAventura World recently announced that it will start accepting Bitcoin payments in 2022.
“The carbon-neutral resort project is integrated into the global corporate responsibility strategy that guides the company’s decision-making to continue being a benchmark in sustainable tourism,” Fernandez Veciana said. “Our strategic approach also demands that we integrate compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), defined in the 2030 Agenda, into our management in order to continue generating value.”
