WTTC and UNEP release new report on Single-Use Plastic Products to advance sustainability in Travel & Tourismide
The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), launch a major new report today, addressing the complex issue of single-use plastic products within Travel & Tourism.
‘Rethinking Single-Use Plastic Products in Travel & Tourism’ launches as countries around the world begins to reopen, and the Travel & Tourism sector starts to show signs of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic which has been devastating.
Water bottles, disposable toiletries, plastic bags, bin liners, food packaging and cups are among the biggest plastic polluters.
Rethinking single-use plastic products requires collaboration from all stakeholders
The report is a first step to mapping single-use plastic products across the Travel & Tourism value chain, identifying hotspots for environmental leakages, and providing practical and strategic recommendations for businesses and policymakers.
