To avoid catastrophic climate change, the world needs to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees centigrade above pre-insdutrial levels. Today, we are already at 1.1°C and feeling the effects, meaning that the window for achieving our target and avoiding the most catastrophic impacts of climate change is rapidly closing. The very environmental values and cultural assets that attract visitors to destinations need to be protected and responsibly managed. The tourism industry and its operators are key to creating this change. Stewart Moore, CEO and Founder of EarthCheck, said that Motu Nao Nao has taken a significant leadership position in sustainability.
