Tuesday, 1 June 2021. Madrid Fusión, the international gastronomy event celebrating its 19th edition at IFEMA, has awarded Azurmendi, together with Aquanaria, its first Sustainability Award. This is the first time this award has been presented. It aims to publicize the gastronomy-related project that is most committed to meeting the sustainable development goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The jury was made up of experts from the gastronomy and food sector.
Eneko Atxa, for whom the territory and Basque cultural heritage, the natural environment, people and society, pillars of sustainable development, are the basis of his projects, designed the building, operations, and developed proposals following these principles, which has turned the Azurmendi gastronomic complex into an international reference.
This award for Azurmendi’s sustainability is added to those already achieved previously, such as the Green Star awarded by the Michelin Guide, the World’s Most Sustainable Restaurant in the World on two occasions by The World’s 50 Best, or the Sustainable Sun by the Repsol Guide 2021.
