The travel and tourist sector is interested to become more environmentally friendly to reduce the harmful effects of climate change. The Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, a global organization that represents the top 30 percent of the hospitality industry, has announced the creation of a Planet Pathway to Net Positive Hospitality (Pathway).
The Pathway works to improve every hotel, regardless of where they are on their sustainable path, improve their impact. The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has developed a sustainable framework available to the worldwide hospitality industry in support of the project.
Environmentalists are warning about climate change and its terrible consequences even before the world have fully aligned itself with the changing scenario following the COVID-19 pandemic.
As per the most recent Climate Action Tracker (CAT) report, despite promises made by countries attending the United Nations summit in Glasgow to reduce greenhouse gas discharges by 2030, the Earth is set to warm far beyond the 2100 target.
CAT stated in another report that, despite commitments to net-zero discharges, none of the 40 indicators are progressing at the rate required for the world to cut greenhouse gas discharges in half by 2030 and fully decarbonize by mid-century. Which are necessary to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
“The world is without a doubt at a critical tipping point,” says Wolfgang M. Neumann, Chair of the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance. However, it is not too late to prevent an environmental disaster. We must act quickly and collaborate while doubling our efforts.
The conversation must go beyond having a ‘zero’ impact and consider what we can put back into the natural world to ensure we have a long-term positive impact on our planet and its people.”
Now, hotels worldwide, whether in groups or individually, can explore this knowledge base to find workable solutions to become more sustainable.
Accor, Barceló Hotel Group, Huazhu including their affiliate Deutsche Hospitality, Indian Hotels Company Limited, Jin Jiang International (Holdings) Co., Ltd. including their affiliates Jin Jiang Hotels, Louvre Hotels Group, and Radisson Hotel Group, Meliá Hotels International, Minor Hotels including NH Hotel Group are one of the current partner groups.
