Co-op: Travel companies must work together



Co-op: Travel companies must work together
Travel operators must combine their efforts to ensure a common approach is taken toward climate change, according to The Co-operative Travel.

Mike Greenacre, managing director of the firm, which operates over 400 high street travel agencies, said the common approach was not something that could be imposed on companies.

"It has got be something where a company takes the lead to partner with major organisations to help develop a common approach to sustainability and climate change and still allows individual companies to make their own contribution," he said at the World Travel Market, held at London's Excel Centre earlier this week.

Visitors to the business event were also told that operator TUI Travel will be introducing a new Boeing 787, which burns 20 percent less fuel, into its fleet.

A statement made on Wednesday (November 11th) said TUI was aiming to cut its carbon footprint by introducing the "technologically advanced" 787s by 2012.

It is hoped the aircraft will cut the 7.6 million tonnes of carbon generated annually by the firm, which flies around 30 million passengers each year.
