TUI signed the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism
As the world’s largest integrated leisure tourism business, we are proud of the positive role our industry plays around the world. The travel and tourism sector accounts for 9% of the world’s GDP and 6% of its exports*. It is responsible for one in 11 jobs globally* and is the main source of foreign exchange in one-third of developing countries**.
There are also significant challenges. Travel and tourism accounts for around 5% of global carbon emissions** - half of which is attributable to aviation. We are committed to reducing carbon emissions which is a key challenge for TUI.
Our vision is to make travel experiences special whilst minimising environmental impact, respecting culture and people and bringing economic benefits to communities.
