Tui Travel has won international recognition for its efforts in sustainable business practices.
The Thomson/First Choice parent company has been recognised as one of four top-scoring travel and tourism companies by Sustainable Asset Management
The SAM Sustainability Yearbook awarded Tui a Silver Class distinction and Sector Mover status for its outstanding achievements in the area of corporate sustainability.
Its major shareholder Tui AG was credited as Sector Leader with a Gold Class award.
The titles have been awarded after the world’s 2,500 largest companies were invited to participate in SAM’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment.
Only the top-scoring 15% of the companies in each of the 58 sectors assessed are eligible for inclusion in the Yearbook which was presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The leading companies are classified into three categories—SAM Gold Class, SAM Silver Class and SAM Bronze Class—with special status awarded to Sector Leaders and Sector Movers.
Tui Travel was awarded Sector Mover status for achieving a 9% improvement in its sustainability performance compared to last year.
Deputy CEO Johan Lundgren said: “These awards recognise the great efforts our businesses are making to embed sustainability into business practices and supplier operating standards.
“We have a firm commitment to sustainable development and we take these challenges seriously, recognising that they are key to the future success of our business and the wider industry.”
