Climate action is a collective responsibility.
It’s up to every individual, business and government to do their part and take action.
Before Covid-19 brought the world, and the travel industry to a halt, tourism accounted for roughly 8% of the world’s carbon emissions. And while the pandemic has devastated much of our industry, it has also provided us with the opportunity to reassess our actions and commit to rebuilding more responsibly.
The best way to act on climate change? To work together to reduce our collective carbon emissions.
And as a carbon neutral business since 2010 (the world’s largest, in fact!), and one working towards being climate positive, we recognize that is not enough. We know we must use our voice to advocate for the travel industry to decarbonise. Because the time to act is now. And as a business with 40+ offices around the world and operations in 120+ countries as of 2019, we’ve learnt a few things in our decades of climate advocacy.
This is why we’ve created a 10-step guide to decarbonise your travel business.
The complimentary resource provides an easy-to-follow action plan on reduction and offsetting, with practical examples and tips for other tourism businesses to follow.
