Happy Earth Day! The theme for 2022 is how businesses can #investinourplanet. So let’s have a little look at what we’ve been doing shall we?
Travel has an awesome power to do good. But we also recognise the role it plays in climate change – the greatest risk to our planet. We’re a global travel company, so we don’t shy away from our responsibility to address our role in this challenge. That’s why, to tackle our emissions, we developed our 5-point Climate Action Plan.
And today our parent company The Travel Corporation is announcing the next step in our collective net zero journey. This means we’re formally committing to science-based reduction targets (because science is sexy) and have developed company-wide emission reduction targets that are being reviewed by the Science Based Targets initiative.
If you’re confused by all that, it basically means we’re holding ourselves accountable. Rather than just saying what we’ll do, we’re doing what we say. And science-based targets will ensure we’re reduce our emissions in line with keeping the global temperature well below a warming of 1.5 C by mid-century. Pretty cool, right? (no pun intended).
