Being part of the travel industry comes with an underlying commitment to the world and the destinations we operate our tours in. The IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report states, “Since systematic scientific assessments began in the 1970s, the influence of human activity on the warming of the climate system has evolved from theory to established fact”. Travel and Tourism represent around 8% of global carbon emissions, which businesses and travelers need to be accountable for. If we don’t take action today, the problems we’re facing will only get more complicated as the years go by.  

The journey toward your business’ sustainability goes beyond offsetting your footprint. First, you need to understand how much carbon you’re producing with your trips and operations, see areas of improvement to reduce these emissions, and educate your travelers on how they can do the same. Once you’ve achieved this, you can start compensating your carbon footprint mindfully and helping the environment. To help you through this process, WeTravel has prepared a special one-hour webinar, teaming up with inspiring industry experts that will walk you through the process of having a more sustainable travel business:
