The Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell 2020 will strengthen its position as tournament model in the ATP circuit from the point of view of sustainability and has decided to increase specific actions that highlight the message of the use of good environmental practices during the tournament. In 2018, the organization received the ISO 20121 certificate for the management of sustainable events and last year was recognized by Barcelona Biosphere with the distinction of the commitment to the city's tourism sustainability.
In 2020 the tournament will once again be declared a smoking-free event, which places the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell as the first clean-air ATP circuit that launches such an outstanding initiative. And it will also become an example to follow for the other tournaments for the decision to recycle all unused or in bad condition accreditations that have not been distributed. It is unknown that any other tennis tournament has taken such an action before.
