TUI requires its hotel partners to cut emissions by almost half by 2030

TUI issued the Green Building Guidelines that provide recommendations for TUI hotels and hotel partners and establish the objective of reducing emisions from TUI's hotel business to zero by 2030.

TUI Hotels & Resorts has called on its hotel partners to reduce CO2 emissions at its establishments by almost half (46.2%) by 2030 compared to 2019. This request is included in the hotel division’s Green Building Guidelines, which provide recommendations for the construction and renovation projects of TUI hotels and their hotel partners.

The guidelines contain the most important aspects of reducing environmental impact and achieving savings in water and energy consumption. They also cover topics such as monitoring systems, sustainability certification and communication with stakeholders. The guidelines were reviewed by external experts.

“We are pleased to see our Guidelines promoting sustainable construction decisions around the world. They bring together proven measures and the expertise of our sustainability and construction experts for all our hotel brands. Our hotel partners, architects, engineers and contractors can benefit from this knowledge and commit to using the Guidelines as they develop hotels for a more sustainable future,” said Jessica Kuthe, Director Portfolio Management, TUI Hotels & Resorts.

The TUI hotels have already started implementing measures from the Green Building Guidelines, particularly in the area of energy savings. The long-standing joint venture partners RIU, Atlantica and Grupotel have increased the number of their photovoltaic systems, e.g. in Spain, Cape Verde and Greece. In Italy, the Robinson hotel brand operates one of the largest photovoltaic plants of any hotel in Europe. Robinson was also awarded the coveted DGNB Platinum certificate for a sustainable building project on Fuerteventura.

The Green Building Guidelines support TUI Group’s Sustainability Agenda, which aims to massively reduce the company’s environmental footprint. By 2030, TUI Hotels & Resorts’ emissions are to be reduced by almost half (46.2 percent) compared to 2019.

The targets have been confirmed by the independent Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). At the same time, TUI is working to achieve even more ambitious reduction targets – and to reduce the hotels’ CO2 emissions to zero as far as possible as early as 2030. Important levers for this are renewable energy and resource-saving processes. Sustainable buildings can make an important contribution to these environmental protection efforts.
