Low-consumption lighting systems have been installed, Additionally, by adhering to the Ministry of Industry's definition of the optimum comfort temperature our climate control systems have managed to save energy and minimize the impact on the environment.
With regard to eco-design, the fact that we work with reusable stands and recyclable structures has considerably reduced the volume of waste and CO2 emissions.
