Climate action plan
Travel has the power to help develop and support local communities, educate people about culture, and preserve ancient ways of living.
But for all the good that travel does, it also sadly contributes to the climate crisis we are currently facing.
Tourism is a truly global community, and that’s why every Host, Operator and Guest has a major part to play in making changes to how they travel operate and live, to help reduce the total carbon footprint of the travel industry.
To demonstrate our full commitment to reducing our global carbon emissions, SUPERHOG has signed up to Tourism Declares.
We declare a climate emergency
Tourism Declares is 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.
Like all other fellow signatories, we have committed to the following five actions:
- Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ within the next 12 months, which sets out our intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade.
- Share an initial public declaration of our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’, and update on progress each year.
- 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. We’ll 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.
- Encourage our suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; sharing best practices amongst peers; and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community.
- Advocate for change. We recognise the need for system change across the industry to accelerate a just transition towards carbon-free tourism.
