Commitments:

In the framework of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, BB Voyage – IndeXperience commits to: 

  • Encouraging partners in the supply chain and at destination level to join the GTPI via an awareness campaign to educate partners about the environmental impacts of plastic waste and the benefits of participating in the GTPI; engaging in regular communication with supply chain partners and destination stakeholders and emphasizing the importance of reducing plastic usage and promoting sustainable alternatives; offering incentives and recognition to partners who actively adopt sustainable practices and join the GTPI; initiating pilot projects to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of plastic waste reduction measures; and establishing a system to monitor progress, collect data on plastic reduction efforts, and evaluate the impact of these initiatives. 

  • By 2025, BB Voyage – IndeXperience aims to have at least 75% of partners in the supply chain and destination-level stakeholders join the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative.  

  • Advising and guiding partners in the supply chain and at destination level to better manage plastics in their operations by: conducting an assessment of each partner's current plastic management practices (plastic usage, waste disposal methods, and existing sustainability policies) to identify areas for improvement; developing customized recommendations and action plans for each partner; providing training and capacity-building initiatives to equip partners and stakeholders with the knowledge and skills required for effective plastic waste management; collaborating with partners to implement the recommended practices and provide ongoing support throughout the transition; and establishing a monitoring system to track each partner's progress in adopting and implementing plastic management practices. 

  • Communicating successes to affiliated organizations and partners by establishing key success metrics to measure the impact of plastic reduction efforts; collecting and analyzing data regularly to track progress and identify success stories; developing case studies and progress reports; creating engaging content to share success stories with a wider audience; using social media platforms to amplify these messages and celebrate achievements; organizing events and workshops; collaborating with influencers, sustainable tourism advocates, and media outlets. 

  • Reporting publicly and annually on progress made towards these targets via own platforms.
