Climate Emergency

Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency

We’ve signed up to Tourism Declares, an initiative that supports tourism businesses, organizations, and individuals in declaring a climate emergency and taking purposeful action to reduce their carbon emissions as per the advice from The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030. Like all signatories, we have committed to the following five actions

  1. Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ within the next 12 months, which sets out our intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade.
  2. Share an initial public declaration of our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’, and update on progress each year.
  3. Accept current IPCC advice stating the need to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming. We’ll ensure our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ represents actions designed to achieve this as a minimum, through delivering transparent, measurable, and increasing reductions in the total carbon emissions per customer arising from our operations and the travel services sold by us.
  4. Encourage our suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; sharing best practices amongst peers, and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community
  5. Advocate for change. We recognize the need for system change across the industry to accelerate a just transition towards carbon-free tourism. Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency

Accordingly, here in a nutshell our commitment:

  1. reducing emission by sponsoring and facilitating cycling to our Baratti Bay
  2. results will be fully visible the more the cycleway project will take place
  3. truly perceiving the need for IPCC advice
  4. selecting suppliers using further criteria
  5. embracing the whole idea
