We’ve set out our responsible travel commitments, our climate action plan to become a net-zero travel company, and joined fellow travel companies in declaring a climate emergency. We’ve signed up to Tourism Declares and the Glasgow Declaration, initiatives that supports tourism businesses, organisations and individuals in declaring a climate emergency and taking purposeful action to reduce their carbon emissions as per the advice from The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030.
Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ within the next 12 months, which sets out our intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade. If you would like to see the action we are taking now, and how we plan to develop this as we continue to grow, please read our Climate & Community Impact plan.
Share an initial public declaration of our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’, and update on progress each year. Aligning our plans with the five pathways of the Declaration (Measure, Decarbonise, Regenerate, Collaborate, Finance) to accelerate and co-ordinate climate action in tourism.
Accept current IPCC advice stating the need to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming. We’ll ensure our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ represents actions designed to achieve this as a minimum, through delivering transparent, measurable and increasing reductions in the total carbon emissions per customer arising from our operations and the travel services sold by us.
Encourage our suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; sharing best practice amongst peers; and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community.
We recognise the need for system change across the industry to accelerate a just transition towards carbon-free tourism.
