In November 2021, Inntravel was a launch partner of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism
, and alongside so many in our industry we promised to reduce our carbon footprint by 50% by 2030, working towards net zero in 2050.
The next step was the development of our climate action plan which we published early in 2022. Travel is about the intangible things we can take from our journeys, the spirit of ‘take only memories, leave only footprints’; we believe that travel should change us, while not adversely impacting the world around us, and this plan outlines how we want to acknowledge and take action against our own footprint on this precious planet.
Our climate action plan consists of four parts; measure, reduce, mitigate and communicate. Each step in this plan is as important as the next and, as promised, we have finalised each part of the plan and confirmed some new partnerships.
We are striving to have the most comprehensive climate action plan in the industry. We are building a network of new relationships and partnerships to ensure our commitments are embedded in all of our decisions and all of our product, and that our promises are never misleading. We will inevitably make mistakes, and may not hit every target, but we know that we must aim high to spark systemic change. We will communicate our failings and successes, and continue to keep our plan up to date as we adapt.
