Sustainability is one of the Foiling Week's core values, provisioning a conscious way of dealing with the sport of sailing which is ecological by its very nature.

There are habits of life that even sailors tend to underestimate. Avoiding waste by not using plastic bottles, conscious use of fresh water to wash boats and equipment and differentiating waste products are just some of the actions being introduced to improve life on our planet whilst participating in our favorite sport. With this theme the Foiling Week partner Torqeedo extends the opportunity to reduce pollution and carbon footprint by using electric engines on support media and guests boats at Foiling Week events.
