Jumbo Tours Spain and Jumbo Tours Canary Islands obtain the carbon footprint verification
Jumbo Tours España and Jumbo Tours Canarias, both part of Jumbo Tours Group, have just obtained the verification of their carbon footprint, which demonstrates the Balearic group’s social commitment to sustainability. With this, the company strengthens its competence in environmental management by reducing greenhouse gases and thus contributing to combating climate change, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations.
Responsibility in energy management is a priority for Jumbo Tours Group, which has been innovating for decades with the aim of making an impact on the environment through its drive to make sustainability a reality. An example of this commitment is the Green&Human consortium, a sustainable initiative promoted by Jumbo Tours Group with the goal of accompanying and supporting different companies in the sector to boost a sustainable tourism model, with the commitment of reducing its carbon output by more than 70t in the next 3 years.
In order to achieve this verification, certified by Bureau Veritas, the companies have undergone an audit and a validation of the calculation carried out by an independent company that verifies that the declaration made regarding greenhouse gas emissions is complete, accurate and fully transparent.
Jumbo Tours Group is aware of the importance of reducing its carbon footprint, an indicator that reflects the total amount of greenhouse gases that each person, organisation or product emits into the atmosphere. And to achieve this, the first thing to do is to measure it.
According to the report prepared for the quantification of greenhouse gas emissions and removals regulated by the ISO 14064-1:2018 norm, the two subsidiaries of the Balearic company meet all the requirements to obtain the carbon footprint verification certificate, which is why they have been granted it. The calculation of the footprint has been carried out based on direct emissions, both from fuels in fleet movements and refrigerant gases, and indirect emissions derived from electricity consumption.
Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest challenges for society in the next few decades. In response, Jumbo Tours Group is joining initiatives to limit greenhouse gas concentrations in the earth’s atmosphere, including the quantification, follow-up, reporting and verification of greenhouse gas emissions. The belief that the tourism sector can play a leading role in the sustainable transformation of tourism is the reason for Jumbo Tours Group’s commitment to the environment.
