guidelines developed to support TUI hotels in tackling plastic pollution
Growing plastic pollution negatively impacts travel and tourism, particularly near the beaches and oceans so important to destinations. TUI is delighted to contribute to the development of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, recognising the industry's role to drive change and raise awareness of plastic waste around the world. The sector can make a real difference by working together and sharing best practice. As part of its contribution to the global drive to reduce plastic waste, TUI aims to remove 250 million pieces of single-use plastics by the end of 2020 through concerted efforts across its hotels, cruise ships, airlines, destinations and offices. Initiatives include removing 112 million single-use plastic items from hotels, launching 'plastic reduction guidelines' for hotels and TUI Cruise's ambitious wasteless plastic reduction programme. TUI's independent charitable foundation,TUI Care Foundation, is also working on numerous projects to address the challenge of plastic waste for the marine environment.
