In January 2020, Explore was a founding signatory of Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency. The next step of this has been the development of a climate action plan. Our plan will help protect the planet we love as we re-emerge ready to build back better .
Our climate action plan has four elements; measure, reduce, mitigate and communicate. We have given ourselves until November 2021, when the UK is hosting the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Glasgow, to have finalised and confirmed each element of our plan.
We are striving to have the most comprehensive climate action plan in the industry. We will build a network of new relationships and partnerships to ensure our commitments are embedded in all of our decisions and all of our product, and that our promises are never misleading. We will inevitably make mistakes, and not every target will be hit, but we know that we must aim high to spark systemic change. We will communicate our failings and successes, and keep our plan up to date as we adapt.
