TULUM, Mexico – As the curtains rose on the 2024 Bioferia in Tulum, anticipation enveloped the vibrant coastal town, known for its pristine beaches and rich Mayan heritage. This year’s fair, however, added another feather to Tulum’s cap, marking a significant stride toward sustainable living and environmental consciousness. Marc Pujol, the president of the Confederation of Employers of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) Riviera Maya, heralded the event as a pivotal moment in aligning with the global Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

Pujol emphasized the collaborative efforts between state and municipal governments, foundations, associations, and Coparmex, focusing on two main pillars: reducing pollution and water usage and cutting down urban solid waste generation by 40% through innovative treatments and collection methods. “This can be a great challenge as part of the Agenda 2030, and Tulum’s involvement is crucial. Despite being an ecological destination, our rapid growth often surpasses infrastructure development, hindering environmental friendliness. Events like Bioferia, where we unite for a common cause, are vital,” Pujol stated.

The Bioferia, hosted at Tuk Tulum, stood out as a cultural phenomenon and as Tulum’s most significant event to date, drawing over 5,000 visitors. Its success in its inaugural edition was a source of immense pride. The venue, synonymous with sustainability, showcased leading brands within their realms, each presenting their contributions toward a greener planet. “It’s a grand event replicated in various parts of Latin America,” added the business leader.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined in the Agenda 2030 represent a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Adopted by all United Nations member states in 2015, these 17 goals set a 15-year plan to achieve sustainable development worldwide.
