Intrepid Travel means business in open letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison

October 14, 2021 Sustainable Tourism No Comments

Intrepid Travel has added its name to a list of more than 600 companies that have signed an Open Letter calling on G20 Leaders to go all in for 1.5°C ahead of COP26. This list includes companies big and small,  such as Unilever, Volvo Cars, Netflix Inc and Natura & Co.

We’re responding to the ‘code red’ issued to humanity by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  (IPCC) for the imminent risk of irreversible climate change.

We’re appealing to G20 Leaders to commit to pathways consistent with at least halving global emissions by  2030 to limit temperature increases to 1.5°C and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

To do this we are looking for the G20 to commit to key policies that will trigger a transition of our energy and  financial systems in favour of achieving global net-zero emissions by 2050.

We recognise that ending coal is needed to make way for electrifying transport and renewable energy. We are  calling for an immediate end to new coal power development and clear timelines from governments to phase  out coal-fired power generation by 2030 for advanced economies and by 2040 for other countries.

Intrepid Travel recognises the urgency of climate action. As the world’s largest adventure travel company, we  have a front-row seat to the climate disaster that threatens the world’s destinations. We’ve adopted a science led approach and are the first global tour operator with verified carbon emissions targets by the Science Based  Targets initiative for a 1.5°C world.

We’ve gone further – as a signatory to the Glasgow Declaration, we support the global commitment to at least  halve emissions by 2030 and reach Net Zero as soon as possible before 2050. We will continue to  consistently align our actions with the latest scientific recommendations to ensure our approach remains  consistent with a rise of no more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by 2100.
