Summary

The majority of travel and tourism companies have already initiated sustainable practices. The focus on reducing costs and improving efficiency, and minimizing the carbon footprint, are encouraging organizations to implement sustainable practices. Travel and tourism companies state that sustainable measures and green initiatives are important for their business prospects, and aim to utilize sustainability to enhance brand awareness and increase their competitive advantage. Despite the high costs involved in implementing sustainability measures, sustainable practices reduce operational costs, decrease waste, and enhance worker productivity, which ultimately boosts the overall profit margin of travel and tourism companies.
