In a significant move to simplify sustainability reporting in the travel sector, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and Oliver Wyman have launched a Sustainability Reporting Readiness Roadmap during ITB Berlin. This strategic tool aims to guide businesses through the complexities of sustainability frameworks, compliance timelines, and readiness assessments, streamlining the journey towards sustainable compliance.

Sustainability Reporting Readiness Roadmap: Navigating Sustainability Challenges

The recently released report, “Navigating the Sustainability Journey: The Impact of Mandatory Reporting on Travel & Tourism,” by WTTC and Oliver Wyman sheds light on the unpreparedness of some companies in the sector for upcoming sustainability compliance standards. Urgent action is required, particularly concerning complex supply chains and Scope 3 emissions reporting.

Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO, stressed that sustainability reporting is now non-negotiable for travel businesses. She highlighted that the roadmap serves as a trusted navigator through the intricacies of sustainability reporting, offering guidance to propel companies towards sustainable growth and resilience.
