Iberia and WTO Team Up

Zurab Pololikashvili, secretary general, World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), and Luis Gallego, CEO, Iberia, have signed a cooperation agreement in favour of sustainable tourism, at the headquarters of the airline.

The two organisations share a commitment to enhancing the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the tourism sector, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

This agreement represents a starting point based on which the UNWTO and Iberia will develop and execute specific projects to forge a new leadership in the tourism sector resulting in new resources and actions aimed at achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda, especially Goal 13, to combat climate change.

Pololikashvili said, “We are very happy to sign this agreement with Iberia, with whom we have been working for more than 10 years; together we can carry out projects for the sustainability of tourism worldwide.”

Gallego stated, “At Iberia we have been working for many years on initiatives making us increasingly sustainable. From today going forward, we are committed to cooperating with the main global organization in the field of tourism to jointly strengthen the sustainability of the tourism sector.”
