ADDRESSING POLLUTION FROM SINGLE-USE PLASTIC PRODUCTS: A LIFE CYCLE APPROACH - Key Messages for Tourism Businesses
The One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme aims to accelerate sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in tourism policies and practices to address the challenges of pollution, biodiversity loss and climate change. It promotes knowledge sharing and networking opportunities to define collective priorities and identify solutions.
Through its work, the One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme sets the SCP agenda in the tourism sector to advance the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 12 and also delivers progress under connected goals, such as SDG13, SDG14 and SDG15, respectively on climate action and the protection of marine and terrestrial ecosystems.
The One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme is led by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) of the United Nations, with the governments of France and Spain as Co-leads and in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
