The travel & tourism sector has a big stake in decarbonization, because a wrecked planet serves no one’s purpose. Accommodations, tour operators, aviation, cruise and other tourism intermediaries will play a crucial role, given their investment potential and ability to affect positive change across entire value chains. Efforts have visibly increased in recent years, with a clear focus on moving beyond environmental sustainability towards a net zero future.
Technological interventions will be needed at various stages of the stakeholders’ path to a low carbon future, with support needed to define and monitor companies’ emissions, build and enable sustainable operations, reduce emissions by carbon removal or offsetting, supporting nature-based solutions and enhancing data collection, monitoring and reporting capabilities.
