Fundación BBK will show its commitment to regional sustainability in the second edition of SUM Bilbao.
BBK, as a banking foundation committed to the development and progress of Bizkaia, has been working in favour of the environment and the region’s sustainable development for some time. Among other projects, it has supported the creation of start-ups in Bizkaia that offer refreshing stimuli, funding projects that develop renewable energy generation or foster energy transition.
In this new edition, BBK will participate again as one of the main sponsors in the Platinum category. Its participation is highly significant, as it strengthens the link between sustainable mobility and the financial sector, as well as showing an interest in the fulfilment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Bizkaibus is the public road transport service managed by Bizkaia Provincial Council. It connects the province of Bizkaia thanks to an effective network of inter-urban routes, with a constant increase in recent years of the number of passengers and kilometres travelled.
Bizkaibus has one of the most sustainable, efficient and modern fleets in Spain, comprised of 338 buses with an average age of 5.6 years, and 12% of which are hybrid. Bizkaibus has also launched the tender for two electric vehicles for 2022 after the tests carried out this year. All this as part of the commitment by the provincial department of Transport and Sustainable Mobility to cleaner and more environmentally-friendly mobility in Bizkaia.

As a Bilbobus and Bizkaibus operator, Alsa must have a presence in this new edition of SUM Bilbao to present its successful experiences in the electric mobility area, as in the case of Bilbao, and its projects in hydrogen buses, a technology that will be playing a key role in the green transition and the mobility of the future.
The Department of Transport of the Basque Government is currently working on the draft bill of the Sustainable Mobility Act. The draft bill establishes a model that is committed to active mobility (on foot or by bicycle), promoting public transport over private vehicles, the interoperability of public transport tickets in an integrated intermodal system, promoting a sustainable mobility approach based on urban planning, and promoting rail transport. At the SUM BIO21, we shall bring together representatives from the public, private, business and academic sectors to share and contribute ideas and knowledge. Only then will we be able to build the mobility of the future from a sustainable perspective.
