The focus on climate change as an urgent existential issue has driven ESG growth, affecting companies across all sectors, including Travel & Tourism. Governments and institutions worldwide are mandating companies to disclose ESG practices and outcomes, shifting from voluntary to mandatory reporting. In the midst of these changes, Oliver Wyman has joined forces with the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) to produce a groundbreaking new report, demystifying ESG requirements for the Travel & Tourism sector. In this event, our expert panelists revealed how Travel & Tourism can seize the opportunities presented by these future ESG requirements.

Major global cities have set ambitious decarbonization targets, but these efforts may not be enough to comply with the Paris Agreement. With over 30% of cities’ emissions coming from transport, urban mobility will play a critical role in lowering CO2 emissions. The Oliver Wyman Forum developed a model-based solution to help cities achieve the 1.5oC global warming target by 2030 with paths unique to each city’s mobility network. This panel session presented the research, identifed available solutions, and shared best practices across cities. Representatives from the private and public sectors, as well as academia, enriched the discussion by sharing their perspectives on the matter.
