The Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism: shared pathways towards a carbon-neutral tourism
During the UN COP26, over 300 tourism stakeholders launched the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism.
The Declaration will bring the sector commitment towards carbon neutrality by 2050 a step forward by leading and aligning climate action plans across tourism.
The objectives outlined in the Declaration will be possible by following five shared pathways:
- Measuring and disclosing all travel and tourism-related emissions;
- Setting and delivering targets to accelerate tourism’s decarbonisation;
- Restoring and protecting ecosystems;
- Collaborating with other stakeholders to coordinate our efforts;
- And ensuring the financial capacity to meet the objectives set out in climate plans.
HOTREC welcomes this Declaration and fully supports its activity, its agenda and foreseeable implementation.
