ATKIN JONES LIMITED DECLARES A CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Atkin Jones Limited, together with our travel safety consultancy Sanderson Phillips, operates in the travel, leisure and lifestyle industries. Due to our presence in travel and our strong network of clients and stakeholders, we are able to see first-hand the importance of operating with a sustainable mindset for every single person in the travel and tourism sphere. We believe that every person and organisation has a responsibility to do their best to try and live and work in a way that benefits People, Planet and Prosperity for all. As acknowledgement of this and as part of our wider Atkin Jones Social Responsibility Charter, we are signed up and committed members of Tourism Declares and the Glasgow Declaration.

 

We're calling on Tourism to declare a Climate Emergency 

Atkin Jones Limited is proud to have signed up to Tourism Declares and the Glasgow Declaration. Tourism Declares is a global initiative that supports tourism businesses, organisations and individuals in declaring a climate emergency and taking purposeful action to reduce their carbon emissions as per the advice from The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030.  

 

As part of this, we at Atkin Jones Limited, along with our sister brand Sanderson Phillips

  • Declare our shared commitment to unite all stakeholders in transforming tourism to deliver effective climate action. 

  • Support the global commitment to halve emissions by 2030 and reach Net Zero as soon as possible before 2050.  

  • Will consistently align our actions with the latest scientific recommendations, so as to ensure our approach remains consistent with a rise of no more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by 2100. 

Along with our fellow members this means we have committed to the following five actions: 

  1. Deliver a Climate Action Plan within 12 months of signing (June 2023). 

  2. Report publicly both progress against interim and long-term targets, as well as the actions being taken, at least annually. 

  3. Align our plan with five shared pathways (measure, decarbonise, regenerate, collaborate, finance) to ensure climate action is consistent across all of tourism. 

  4. Share information on activities connected to Tourism Declares and/or the Glasgow Declaration among contacts and networks. 

  5. Work in a collaborative and constructive spirit with other members of Tourism Declares and/or signatories of the Glasgow Declaration. 

 

We encourage our tourism friends and stakeholders that feel similarly about the Climate Emergency to visit Tourism Declares. The goal is to enable as many travel companies, organisations and individuals to get involved, declare a climate emergency, and take action.
