Data on the impact of Travel & Tourism
WTTC continues to produce robust research which can inform public sector decision-making through data, knowledge sharing, and thought-leadership on key concerns for our sector.
Economic Impact Research:
We produce reports on the economic and employment impact of Travel & Tourism for 185 countries/economies and 26 geographic or economic regions in the world. These reports, in conjunction with Oxford Economics, are a vital tool in helping us to equip public and private sector bodies with hard evidence of the huge value Travel & Tourism brings to the economy, so that their policymaking and investment decisions support our sector.
All of these reports can be found on the WTTC Research Hub.
Environmental and Social Reporting:
We have expanded our reporting on the sector’s impact to include environmental and social footprints across a range of indicators, including GHG, pollutants, energy sources, water use, material input, the age, wage and gender profile of employment, etc. It includes direct and supply chain impacts (for GHG, scopes 1, 2 and 3), and is tracked across the sub-sectors that make up Travel & Tourism. This data exists for 185 countries, with initial years including 2010, 2019, 2020, 2021. The results are also mapped against the relevant Sustainable Development Goals which makes them a great tool to track Travel & Tourism’s progress against these global objectives.
The full range of data from our Environmental and Social Reporting at country, regional, and global level can be accessed via our website here.
We are happy to work with governments to provide more detailed, tailored data and insights to inform specific policy needs or decision-making.
