Report by World Travel and Tourism Council-WTTC, “A Net Zero Roadmap for Travel and Tourism: proposing a new target framework for the travel and tourism sector” (November 2021).

The urgency of addressing climate change, emphasized by the 2021 IPCC report, highlights the significant impact on the Travel & Tourism sector, a notable emitter of greenhouse gases. Transitioning to net zero emissions by 2050 is crucial, with businesses playing a pivotal role. This report focuses on selected industries within the sector, offering insights into challenges, opportunities, and pathways to decarbonization. Key findings reveal variations in carbon footprints, progress in establishing climate targets, and challenges in monitoring emissions. Common obstacles include fragmented regulations, lack of governmental support, and financial constraints, particularly for SMEs. Ensuring inclusivity in decarbonization efforts is essential.
