The impact


The cause that the Raimat Lleida Community Foundation will work with the benefits of the festival will be the regeneration of water.

A festival of impact

The festival has developed a management model to minimize impact, promote sustainability, enhancing biodiversity and the ecosystem of the territory. The carbon and water footprint will be offset in this second edition.

A regenerative vision

In collaboration with the Bcorp consultancy Quiero, we are carrying out a progressive impact measurement, which began in 2022, with the 1st edition of the festival and will continue with this and the following editions, ensuring the minimum environmental impact caused by the festival, in addition to returning more than it consumes to the environment, to ensure that it becomes a regenerative festival and in the future, convert the water and carbon footprint to Net Positive, reduce 50% of all marked indicators and expand social indicators.

Progressive impact measurement

To ensure the real impact on our community, an impact measurement will be carried out that analyzes both the direct effect of the festival on people and the environment, and a long-term measurement in which we can know the true transformation generated in all participants.

The circular economy

In collaboration with Circular Carbon we work on climate neutrality, innovating in circular economy, promoting responsible production and consumption, encouraging efficiency in the use of resources, reducing environmental impact and emphasizing human well-being, through an environmental chek-list:

Circular procurement: creation of circular procurement and procurement policy, with the green purchase of food and beverages and the selection of local suppliers.

Resource and waste management plan: design of a “zero waste” plan from source.

Energy and infrastructures: design of the event taking advantage of pre-existing infrastructures with environmental criteria.

Transport: promoting sustainable mobility with the agreement signed with Renfe for AVE transfers to Lleida.

Climate action plan in context of water scarcity: measurement, reduction and compensation of water and carbon.


In collaboration with Extendra, we take advantage of the latest technological tools to measure the impact on participants. Through blockchain, personalized experiences in virtual and augmented reality; This way we can generate reliable traceability of each user’s journey and provide them with a unique value at the same time.

El Castell de Raymat is adhered to the United Nations Global Compact of the 2030 Agenda and, through the festival, works aligned with the following SDGs:

Water is the main theme of the RAF23 and the water crisis is a major problem to which we will dedicate the resources of the festival to improve, through the Axis of Climate Change of the Community Foundation Raimat Lleida.
