Skift Take

In this video from Skift Global Forum 2022, Jeff Nieman, senior vice president, operations initiatives, Hertz Corporation, and Danielle Bozarth, senior partner, McKinsey & Company, discuss sustainability insights with Skift Research as the travel industry forges a path to net-zero carbon emissions.

In this video:

  • Travel companies weigh sustainability needs with practical policies: Businesses are hungry for knowledge on sustainability policy and practices, with the need for better strategic directives, investment frameworks and leadership.
  • Shifts in operations require a strategic transformation: New practices toward net-zero will impact existing operational methods, and industry operators will need to think about logistical transformations to business models, the importance of partnership leverage, and top-to-bottom organizational alignment.
  • How to engage travelers to be part of the solution: Companies must engage and encourage leisure travelers to follow through on sustainability initiatives and close the “say-do” gap.

Sustainability is at the forefront of today’s travel world, with brands and operators seeking leadership and cohesive strategies on how to act more sustainably.
