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.
