Sustainability test for Online Travel Agencies
How sustainable is your OTA? Take the free test!
Many online travel agencies do not work sustainably and do not think about sustainability when selling trips to their customers. What about your OTA? Is it sustainable? Take the free sustainability test!
A new study has found that most online travel agencies (OTAs) still have a long way to go on sustainability. According to the study, only about 30 percent of all OTAs are aware of their sustainability responsibility and the corresponding challenges. The situation is even worse for European OTAs, where only 27 percent are aware of the sustainability challenges. These European online travel agencies have always actively started to work on the issue. For example, they have started to address the issue, to point out more environmentally friendly flights or to offer guests the offsetting of CO2 emissions caused by their travel.
One out of seven OTAs publishes a report on CO2 emissions, but only about one in 30 OTAs reports how much greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are caused in which sectors. Good news, already about every 10th online travel agency is climate neutral.
