Tourism Declares Climate Emergency

Tourism Declares Climate Emergency

Ty Beic has joined Tourism Declares, an initiative that supports tourism businesses, organisations and individuals in declaring a climate emergency and taking purposeful action to reduce 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.

Ty Beic has committed to the following five actions:

1. Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ within the next 12 months, which sets out intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade.

2. Share an initial public declaration of the ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ and update on progress each year.

3. 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. To ensure that the ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ represents actions designed to achieve this as a minimum, through delivering transparent measures and increasing reductions in the total carbon emissions per customer arising from Ty Beic’s operations.

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

5. Advocate for change by recognising the need for system change across the industry to accelerate a just transition towards carbon-free tourism.
