As a result of our commitment to the natural environment and surroundings, PortAventura bases its activity on a management model that allows us to develop our business with maximum respect for the environment, above and beyond the requirements demanded by law. Proof of this lies in the various environmental certifications of renowned prestige that we have been awarded, such as the European Certification EMAS, standard ISO14001 and the Environmental Quality Management Standard.
PortAventura works to promote mutually beneficial relationships with the different stakeholders present in our vicinity. Integrating responsible and sustainable management into our business strategy has allowed us to become Spain’s leading theme park and one of the ten most-visited parks in Europe. PortAventura is a very active economic, social and environmental player, incorporating responsible and sustainable management based on our four corporate values: commitment, quality, passion for customer service and team spirit.
