Leading the Way in Sustainable Tourism and Climate Action

VICTORIA, BC, July 9, 2024 /CNW/ – The Parkside Hotel & Spa announced today that it has become a signatory of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism. This significant milestone marks The Parkside Hotel & Spa’s unwavering commitment to aligning its operations with global scientific recommendations and international agreements to combat climate change.

The Glasgow Declaration is a unified call to action for all stakeholders within the travel and tourism sector to address the urgent need for climate action collaboratively. It encourages a shared commitment to reducing emissions in tourism by at least 50% over the next decade and achieving Net Zero as soon as possible before 2050.

By signing the Glasgow Declaration, The Parkside Hotel & Spa joins a global network of tourism leaders dedicated to a shared vision of climate action. The hotel will develop and implement climate action plans within 12 months, aligned with the five pathways of the Declaration—Measure, Decarbonize, Regenerate, Collaborate and Finance. Additionally, the hotel will ensure transparency and accountability by publicly reporting progress annually while fostering a collaborative spirit, working with other signatories to share best practices, solutions and information to accelerate the tourism sector’s response to the climate emergency.

“The Parkside Hotel & Spa is honoured to join the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism,” said General Manager Trina White. “This commitment reflects our dedication to sustainable practices and our belief in the collective power of the tourism sector to drive meaningful change. We are excited to collaborate with our peers to achieve a sustainable future.”
