Monitoring our Footprint and Steering Sustainable Growth

Travel & Tourism is deeply dependent on nature, and the climate crisis threatens not only vital resources, but the survival of some of earth’s most prized travel destinations. Moreover, sustainable development can only be achieved on a solid social foundation, where there are equal opportunities for decent work for all.

In the wake of the climate crisis, WTTC and the Ministry of Tourism of Saudi Arabia, with the support of Oxford Economics, have created a ground-breaking framework measuring Travel & Tourism’s Environmental and Social footprint. Off the back of this invaluable data WTTC has since produced various resources bringing the data to light. WTTC and its partners will take you through the data, share key findings, and discuss how these data-driven insights can be used to help shape a more sustainable and inclusive future.

In this webinar, entitled Monitoring our Footprint and Steering Sustainable Growth, experts from WTTC, Accenture and The Puerto Rico Tourism Company discussed about:

  • WTTC’s Economic and Social Research (ESR) and key findings
  • Explanation of how the data is used using two report examples
  • Going beyond the data and considering plans for the future
