The BTA Report - "We Can't Do It Alone"

07 March 2022

“We don’t believe that sustainability should be your sales pitch. We believe sustainability should be a part of your company ethos and be reflected in your actions every day.” CAP Worldwide

CAP Worldwide are delighted to have been able to contribute to the first pan-industry ESG - Environmental, Social and Governance report, ‘We Can’t Do It Alone’, released by The BTA last week.

The report is the first benchmark of its kind, looking at the full ESG spectrum, with the findings drawn from interviews with senior leaders from across The BTA’s membership from TMC’s, transport (aviation, ferries, private hire car and rail), accommodation (hotels and serviced accommodation) and the corporate sector. It carefully examines Environmental, Social, Corporate and Governance initiatives alongside current concerns and future priorities.

Encouragingly, nearly one in three BTA members felt they were making strong progress against a range of critical indicators including – climate action, responsible consumption, clean energy and gender equality.

The report found that the Serviced apartment sector is taking a measured approach to ESG implementation, accommodating the industry’s leading ideas, whilst demonstrating the impact of their local action. There is a focus on employees, the supply chain, governance and net zero objectives, with the sector taking time to plan and implement concrete steps towards sustainable development.

‘While there are many great activities taking place across our sector, we (at CAP) believe that for sustainability to become part of what we do every day, profit has to take a step back while we create the right environment for the passionate people of our industry to work together to create systems, processes and change to ensure the UN sustainable development goals are achieved’ Jo Layton – CEO CAP Worldwide.
