BUSINESS SIGNATORIES - ACCOMMODATION PROVIDERS
1) As a first step, signatories must familiarise themselves with the Terms of Reference of the Initiative, which detail the background on the development of the initiative, its governance framework, key stakeholders and workstreams.
2) Secondly, potential signatories need to study in detail the Signatory pack for accommodation providers, in particular the specific commitments which are explained in Section 2 and in Appendix IV. Using the signatory pack for accommodation businesses as guidance, you can determine what commitments your organisation is going to make and with what targets.
3) As an optional step, you can complete the self-asessment survey to asess how ready is your accommodation business to join the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative.
Assess how 'ready' your Accommodation Business is to join the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative
Complete the self-assessment survey (3-5 mins.) to get a snapshot of where your Accommodation Business stands in relation to the requirements of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative. Filling in the survey will help you identify your strengths as well as gaps when it comes to tackling plastics pollution and provide insight on your performance in comparison to other tourism businesses. Once completed, the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative team will share feedback on your submission and would be available to provide guidance on next steps.
4) Once you have confirmation of the detailed commitments your organisation will make, the last step is to complete the online signatory form for accommodation businesses on this page.
NB: it is strongly suggested that this commitment be signed by C-Level Leadership or equivalent. The involvement of C-Level leadership as ‘Single Point of Accountability’, be it the CEO, COO, Chief of Procurement, or equivalent, will ensure a transformational and more ambitious engagement.
Please also note that the signatory commitment on line form must be completed in one session and cannot be saved, so be sure to have all your information available at the time of commencing this form.
Once you have completed this online signatory form, the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative team will get in touch with you to send you a PDF summary of the commitments you have made which you will need to sign and return via email to email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
