NEWS | 02/03/2020The used tyre management system will contribute to the sustainability of the wheelchair school in Getafe.
Butragueño reflected on the significance of this partnership: "Through the recycling of tyres, Signus contributes towards the sustainability of the planet and is now doing so with the Foundation's projects because educating people about recycling is vital". Meanwhile, Signus' general manager commented: "We're working on environmental education across several different projects. Raising awareness about the advantages of the circular economy through sport offers us an opportunity to bring ourselves closer to the youth population. We've got to point out that the applications with the biggest consumption of recycled rubber, which come from unusable tyres, are the material used for football pitches and security and sports surfaces, such as basketball courts".
Respect for the environment
Signus, the collective management system for used tyres, takes its place alongside other bodies involved in the circular economy that also collaborate with the Foundation's projects. Values-based education through sport at the socio-sporting football and basketball schools promotes a respect for the environment, which is key when it comes to building a better world.
