Responsible Tourism Destinations: Roadmap to a “High Ambition Scenario”
4 March 2020. 12:00 – 12:45hrs. ITB Berlin, CityCube, Hall A1
After the cancellation of ITB Berlin, this event has been postponed. An alternative date will be confirmed in due course.
According to the UNWTO/ITF report on “Transport-related CO2 emissions of the tourism sector – Modelling Results”, under the current ambition scenario, a total of 1,998 million tonnes of transport-related CO2 will be attributable to tourism by 2030, representing an increase of 25% over 2016.
The discussion of this High-level panel will build on the commitment of the tourism sector to advance towards a climate high ambition scenario in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, as expressed during the COP25 official side-event “Transforming Tourism for Climate Action”.
During the High-level panel, policy makers, destinations and industry leaders will explain their leading commitments to transform tourism and aim to support a “high ambition scenario” of climate action in tourism.
