Tourism sector signs on to UNWTO Glasgow Declaration

The ‘Glasgow Declaration for Climate Action in Tourism’ has been launched on the UN Climate Change Conference COP26.

Some of tourism’s largest companies have joined governments and locations in committing to chop emissions in half by 2030 and obtain web zero by 2050 on the newest.

The Glasgow Declaration recognises the pressing want for a globally constant plan for local weather motion in tourism.

Signatories decide to measure, decarbonise, regenerate and unlock finance.

Additionally, every signatory commits to ship a concrete local weather motion plan, or up to date plan, inside 12 months of signing.

Speaking at COP26, UNWTO secretary common, Zurab Pololikashvili, pressured that “while many private businesses have led the way in advancing climate action, a more ambitious sector-wide approach is needed to ensure tourism accelerates climate action in a meaningful way”.

He added that “the Glasgow Declaration is a tool to help bridge the gap between good intentions and meaningful climate action”.

Already, greater than 300 tourism stakeholders have signed as much as the declaration, together with main trade gamers to locations, international locations and different tourism stakeholders starting from massive to small.

The Glasgow Declaration was developed via the collaboration of UNWTO, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Visit Scotland, the Travel Foundation and Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency, throughout the framework of the One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme dedicated to speed up sustainable consumption and manufacturing patterns.
