Self-Assessment Tool - Guidelines for Providing Product...

picto-resource
This is the printout version of the online tool based on the United Nations Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information. The main objective of this tool is to offer an opportunity for organizations to self-assess and improve the way they are communicating with consumers about product sustainability (through marketing claims, labels, voluntary standards, product declarations, etc.). This tool also serves as a benchmarking tool to organizations that are currently developing new product sustainability information. Please note that feedback will not be provided, as the objective of this tool is for you to promote a reflection process within your own organisation and teams, gaining insights and ideas on how to improve your current work.

This study for the carbon footprint and a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) in the sector of Tourism in Morocco proposes to ‘eliminate’ emissions from an entire subsector, accommodation, which in 2015 represented 10% of emissions from Moroccan tourism. This will make a significant contribution to emission reductions, specifically considering the anticipated growth of the sector with another 200,000 beds by 2030. The NAMA will also generate global attention, as Morocco would be the first country in the world to pursue a sector-wide decarbonization strategy in tourism. The cost of achieving this goal are moderate, and provide the simultaneous benefit of reducing operating costs and vulnerabilities related to future fluctuations in energy cost, while also improving national energy autonomy.
