GenuineSpain declares a climate emergency

We’ve signed up to Tourism Declares, an initiative that supports tourism businesses, organisations and individuals in declaring a climate emergency and taking purposeful action to reduce their carbon emissions as per the advice from The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030. 

 

 

1. Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’

Developed and Adopted within 12 months

2. Share our commitment and progress publicly

 Transparently sharing progress publicly every year

3. Cut carbon emissions

Accept current IPCC advice stating the need to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming. Ensure our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ represents actions designed to achieve this as a minimum, through delivering transparent, measurable and increasing reductions in the total carbon emissions per customer arising from our operations and the travel services sold by us

4. Work together

Encourage suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; share best practice amongst peers; and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community

5. Advocate for change

Recognise the need for system change across the industry, and call for urgent regulatory action to accelerate the transition towards zero carbon air travel.
