The European Tourism Going Green 2030 initiative is a collaborative effort between the European Commission, national governments, and private tourism stakeholders to make tourism in Europe more sustainable and environmentally friendly by the year 2030. The initiative aims to address the negative impact of tourism on the environment and the need for more responsible tourism practices.

The initiative is part of the European Green Deal, a comprehensive plan to make the EU’s economy more sustainable, and is in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The European Tourism Going Green 2030 initiative sets out a roadmap for reducing the carbon footprint of tourism in Europe and promoting sustainable tourism practices.

The initiative focuses on several key areas, including reducing carbon emissions, protecting natural resources, promoting circular economy practices, and promoting sustainable tourism destinations. The initiative also aims to support sustainable tourism businesses and to encourage travelers to make more sustainable choices.

To achieve these goals, the initiative proposes several measures, such as promoting low-carbon transport options, reducing waste and plastic use, promoting sustainable accommodation options, and supporting sustainable food and beverage practices. The initiative also aims to educate travelers on the importance of responsible tourism practices and the benefits of sustainable tourism.

The European Tourism Going Green 2030 initiative presents a significant opportunity for the tourism industry in Europe to become more sustainable and responsible. By working together, governments, businesses, and travelers can create a more sustainable tourism industry that benefits both people and the planet.

As travelers, we can do our part by choosing sustainable tourism options and making more responsible travel choices. This can include supporting sustainable accommodation options, using public transport or low-carbon transport options, reducing waste, and supporting local communities.

As a travel company we are honoured to be part of the program. Mytraveo will strive to continue its development in green and sustainable tourism.

The European Tourism Going Green 2030 initiative is an important step towards a more sustainable and responsible tourism industry in Europe. Let’s work together to make sure that our travels are not only enjoyable but also environmentally friendly and sustainable.
