WSH joins the Race to Zero
WSH has signed a landmark pledge committing to the Business Ambition for 1.5°C which will see it join the UN Race to Zero, setting a science-based net-zero target and making a critical contribution to limiting the impacts of climate change. The aim is to set science-based targets in line with the Paris Agreement to reach global net-zero global emissions by 2050, in order to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
Mike Hanson, director of sustainable business across WSH, said: “In the year of COP26, and on World Environment Day, our commitment to setting a science-based target is an important milestone.
“I am also delighted to announce that we have formally joined the Zero Carbon Forum, a collaborative programme across the hospitality industry, to deliver a roadmap to net-zero. By working together as an industry, our aim is to achieve net-zero faster and more effectively.”
