Key Takeaways from COP27: Regenerative Tourism and The Path To Net-Zero

December 1, 2022 | 10:00 AM EST - 11:00 AM EST

One year after the official launch of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism, and 30 years since the adoption of the larger United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the tourism industry now faces a reckoning. Considered a landmark agreement for an industry responsible for roughly 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, the Glasgow Declaration, launched last year at COP26, has now brought together over 600 signatories in global tourism to commit to halving the industry’s emissions by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2050. In our webinar, we will explore the pathway for the tourism industry to reach net-zero, the necessity of urgent climate action and what key themes were discussed at The United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) this year in Egypt.
