In February 2022, the European Commission called tourism stakeholders to express concrete actions to contribute to the co-implementation of the Transition Pathway for Tourism and work together towards greener, more digital and resilient tourism.

After two rounds of collecting commitments, 260 pledges altogether show the strong interest and willingness of EU tourism players to work on the transition of EU tourism. Overall, 142 organisations from 23 EU countries and 7 other countries have responded to the call for renewing EU tourism.

The pledges cover 25 out of the 27 Topics of the Transition Pathway for Tourism, including areas such as policy and governance, sustainable mobility, green transition, digital transition, skills, resilience and inclusion, and stakeholder support.

This shows successful continuation of the long-term transition pathway process. Many more commitments and pledges are in the pipeline, still being fine-tuned and clarified by their submitters. The Commission will take stock and publish new and updated commitments up to 3 times a year.

If you are interested in committing to the transition of EU tourism, please answer our call for commitments and participation on the tourism transition pathway.
