"Sustainability is the order of the day. We are particularly pleased that the Festival has found an additional main sponsor in BWT – Best Water Technology – who will help us to get closer to this goal. The idea of banning disposable bottles from our lives should conquer the world from Salzburg," says Festival President Helga Rabl-Stadler.
"As long as we don't have the choice of emigrating to another planets, we should take care of ours. Plastic waste, disposable bottles and their worldwide transport must be drastically reduced. For this we implement Plastic Bottle Free Zones. I am pleased that this vision has now also arrived in the cultural sector through the partnership with the Salzburg Festival and will be carried out into the world from there," says Andreas Weißenbacher.
On the occasion of World Water Day, which is celebrated annually on March 22, Andreas Weißenbacher and Helga Rabl-Stadler exchanged opinions on the future of the valuable resource of water in a press conference. What are the most important challenges of the future in terms of water and water treatment, what contribution does BWT make to sustainable development on our planet, how can plastic be avoided in the future and how can water sources be made accessible to all people in other countries?
