The Glasgow Declaration is a catalyst for increased urgency about the need to accelerate climate action in tourism and to secure strong commitments to supporting the global goals to halve emissions over the next decade and reach Net Zero emissions as soon as possible before 2050.
Over 450 organizations have become signatories of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism to accelerate climate action. Everyone in the tourism sector has a role to play in accelerating climate action and therefore all tourism stakeholders (legal entities) can become signatories of the Glasgow Declaration.
Destinations (national and local governments), businesses (accommodation providers, tour operators, suppliers, etc.), and supporting organizations (NGOs, business associations, academia, etc.) can become signatories of the Initiative.
The Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism defines a clear and consistent sector-wide message and approach to climate action in the coming decade.
The Initiative supports its signatories by sharing knowledge and resources to better implement their commitments; fostering and supporting the work at the destination level to develop and implement climate action plans; tracking and disclosing progress implementing the commitments; and providing international recognition and visibility.
