“We have entered a 10 years of sustainable transformation. This is specifically real for the tourism sector – an sector that of study course greatly relies on intact all-natural natural environment and fair social participation. For us at TUI this is not a menace. It´s an chance.”

“We have a sustainability monitor document that we are proud of. And we are dedicated to guide the sector also in long run. Sustainability is a top rated priority on my agenda.
In a several months, we will start our Sustainability Agenda – Men and women, Planet, Progress – with an ambitious roadmap for all 3 dimensions of sustainability.
We will generate down our emissions and the use of methods. And we will massively raise nearby participation in the destinations we run in – producing certain that regional communities benefit more from the accomplishment of our market.
The Vacation spot Co-Lab Rhodes that we have made in partnership with the Region of the South Aegean and the Greek Authorities is a essential initiative within our new Agenda.
Together with our Greek companions we want to create Rhodes into an worldwide blueprint of sustainable tourism transformation.
The Co-Lab is a definitely holistic initiative – masking all the several features, and all the different stakeholder teams that are desired to condition the sustainable long run of a spot. This has not been completed any place on that scale before.
We have substantial ambitions – and we could not desire for improved companions than our Greek and South Aegean good friends.
I had the enjoyment to examine our plans with Minister Kikilias and Governor Chatzimarkos even before I took more than as CEO. And I was incredibly impressed by their vision, their knowledge and their enthusiasm to travel alter for a better globe.
Our joint vision for the Co-Lab is obvious. We know what desires to be performed. We will now bring the Desired destination Co-Lab to lifetime. I want to invite all of the applicable stakeholders to be part of us in that endeavour – companions, opponents, the civil society.
This is not about TUI or the South Aegean – this is about all of us. The challenge is massive. But I have no doubt: Jointly we can make the location of the long run.”
