WTTC to adopt Net Zero Roadmap for combating climate change

Published on : Friday, September 24, 2021

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) announces the launch of a Net Zero Roadmap for the Travel and Tourism sector to support the industry in combatting climate change during its virtual climate week event.


It also announced the launch of ground-breaking social and environmental research data. The first time such data will be produced across the whole sector, building on WTTC’s annual high-anticipated Economic Impact Report (EIR).


These vital pieces of work represent WTTC’s biggest deliverables in the sector’s drive towards net zero by 2050.
The powerful initiative is being run in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and professional services and consulting experts, Accenture.


WTTC made the announcement at its virtual ‘Net Zero Travel and Tourism – From Ambition to Action’ event today, during annual Climate Week NYC.


Julia Simpson, WTTC President and CEO, said: “The launch of our Net Zero Roadmap for the Travel and Tourism sector and development of sector wide data to measure our success are major steps to show how Travel and Tourism is playing its part in addressing climate change.


“WTTC, alongside our partners and sponsors, looks forward to offering tangible and meaningful solutions to meet the climate change challenge.


“In collaboration with UNEP and Accenture, WTTC will launch the Net Zero Roadmap for the Travel and Tourism sector at COP26 in Glasgow next month. This is a major new initiative that will support our industries on their journeys to become Net Zero.


“As a sector, we are aware that not all industries can achieve such goals at the same time, which is why our Net Zero Roadmap will be so critical.
