Climatetrade has earned recognition from the World Tourism Organization for its work and commitment to meeting Goal #13 Climate Action of the SDGs, and for its contribution to sustainable tourism and widespread ability to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
This international award, which was supported by the United Nations Innovation Network, has highlighted Climatetrade among more than 10,000 StartUps proposals submitted around the world. The UNWTO have valued Climatetrade’s innovative proposal for offsetting CO2 emissions, and its potential to build a better future for people and the planet through tourism.
“The winners show the power of new ideas to transform our sector,” said UNWTO Secretary General, Zurab Pololikashvili, recognizing the potential of tourism to contribute to all the Sustainable Development Goals.
Climatetrade and the other 24 winning startups will receive support and mentoring programs by industry experts. In addition, they will have access to all UNWTO collaborators for the competition, opening the door to possible innovative pilot projects and networking opportunities with important companies and entities.
The winners are also invited to participate in two events, one within the framework of the International Tourism Fair of Spain (FITUR) and the other will take place at the Tourism Tech Adventures Forum, to be held in Qatar in collaboration with Qatar Airways and the Qatar National Tourism Council, another key partner for the project.
