TUI TRAVEL says it has saved £28 million in environmental efficiencies since the launch in 2012 of its Sustainable Holidays Plan, while significantly reducing the absolute and relative carbon emissions of its airlines.
Its Sustainable Holidays Plan is underpinned by 20 commitments that include the delivery of 10 million ‘greener and fairer’ holidays and to operate Europe’s most fuel-efficient airlines.
The company has additionally offset 1.2 million tonnes of carbon through investing in clean energy projects over the last five years; the equivalent to taking 500,000 cars off the road for a year.
Jane Ashton, director of Group Sustainable Development at TUI Travel says: ‘The measures TUI Travel has implemented are starting to bear fruit, creating substantial cost savings and a measurable reduction in CO2 emissions. We have been committed to providing more sustainable holidays for over a decade and will continue to do all we can to lead the travel industry and ensure sustainability is centre stage.’
