The international political response to climate change began at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, where the ‘Rio Convention’ included the adoption of the UN Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This convention set out a framework for action aimed avoiding “dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.” The UNFCCC entered into force in 1994 and now has a near-universal membership of 196 countries. The main objective of the annual Conference of Parties (COP) is to review the Convention’s implementation.
 
Governments, cities and regions from the 152 countries that have ratified the Paris Agreement, must now meet their national climate change commitments ( INDC’s ) so they are looking for the clean energy, low carbon transport and finance solutions to make this a reality. 
 
At Amadeus, we are conscious that the environmental sustainability of the travel and tourism sector is a common objective for all industry players and that little can be achieved in isolation. For this reason, we work with global stakeholders such as UNFCCC in different initiatives that shares the common long-term objective of travel industry sustainability.
