WTTC Announces Net Zero Roadmap for Travel and Tourism

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) announced 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 & Tourism - From Ambition to Action’ event recently, during annual Climate Week NYC.

Julia Simpson, CEO, 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.”
