Bringing the travel industry together to help create a more sustainable future

Founded by Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, Travalyst is a coalition of some of the biggest names in travel and technology:

We’re working to accelerate change within the tourism industry by bringing together leading industry brands in a pre-competitive environment, where we collaborate on bringing consistent sustainability information to the mainstream for the first time. This means we can empower people to make more informed travel choices.

At Travalyst, we’re bringing travellers, communities, and the travel industry to the table to change the way we see and share the world. The joy and learning that comes from experiencing a new place and culture is unparalleled – but it must also be a force for good for the communities and destinations we visit.

With our global coalition of partners, we’re united behind the belief that world-friendly tourism is the way forward.

At Amadeus we acknowledge our responsibility to contribute to a more sustainable travel industry. Travalyst offers us a fantastic opportunity to work collaboratively with other industry partners on this common goal. We are excited about being part of the Travalyst coalition and joining efforts towards a better industry future.”

At, we strive for sustainability to manifest in varying aspects of our business operations – from understanding our role in protecting and improving the environment to making sure tourism is a force for good. Together with Travalyst, we can cultivate a healthier, more sustainable world for everyone.”

Expedia Group is taking action to address climate change and is committed to working across our industry and with a range of partners to shape a sustainable travel and tourism sector.”

Addressing the challenge of climate change requires us to find solutions at scale, and this is especially true when it comes to travel and tourism. By working with Travalyst and our industry partners, we aim to build tools and technology that enable travelers and businesses around the world to prioritize sustainability.”

At Mastercard, we envision a world where each swipe, click or tap provides businesses and consumers with the opportunity to make more sustainable choices. By joining the Travalyst coalition, we can further activate the power of our global network, insights and technologies to empower travellers to better understand the environmental impact of their business and leisure trips.”

We’re committed to taking on the biggest opportunities and solving the most complex challenges in travel, so we’re thrilled to be joining forces with Travalyst and our peers in the industry to help drive more sustainable travel decisions.”

Travel – discovering other countries and cultures – is a fundamental part of being human. As leaders of the travel industry, we must all play a part in ensuring future generations are able to continue exploring the world around them, sustainably. We are proud to be a part of Travalyst, finding solutions together to protect our planet.”

We believe industry-wide collaboration and open-sourced data will be crucial to effectively resolve the industry’s challenges and accelerate sustainable travel. GDSs like Travelport will play a key role in how our industry helps agents, travel managers and travelers determine the most eco-friendly trip itineraries.”

Travel is a powerful means of bringing us closer – to share the beauty of our countries and our myriad cultures, to find our common humanity. But with travel comes the duty to protect our fragile planet. We must ensure that generations to come can follow in our footsteps sustainably and the world and its people can grow together.”

We should all individually address the climate emergency, but it’s a lot easier to make progress working together. We co-founded the Travalyst coalition to protect our planet and the people on it.

We’re encouraging our global community to make responsible choices when traveling, so they — and future generations — get the most out of the experience, with the least impact on the environment.”

As a global leader in digital payments, Visa transcends borders, enabling travel and commerce worldwide. We’re not just facilitating transactions; we’re fostering a more sustainable future. As a founding partner of Travalyst, Visa is proud to collaborate with the travel industry in our shared mission to preserve our planet for future generations.”

We’re aligning the travel industry behind clear, consistent and credible sustainability information

By coming together we can accelerate mainstream access to sustainability information; sharing it at scale, for free, on platforms people already know and trust. When it comes to this information, we aim to consider everything from a hotel’s individual practices to route-based carbon emissions estimates for flights. This information is then displayed on trusted travel platforms.

Working closely with partners across the industry, and with our Independent Advisory Group of world leading academics and sustainability experts, our collaborative approach is helping to streamline and scale the provision of sustainability information, meeting the growing demand from travellers and the business travel world alike.

People booking travel, meanwhile, are given transparency in the process

By providing reliable sustainability information on the booking platforms that users already know and trust, our coalition is helping everyone to make more informed travel decisions.

People want to travel more sustainably:

feel overwhelmed by starting the process of being a more sustainable traveller

It’s not always easy for travellers to know whether they are making better choices from a sustainability perspective, even when they want to. This is why we are bringing some of the biggest industry brands together to help increase visibility of this information.

We believe that now is the time to:

We want to ensure that people can experience all the awe-inspiring wildlife our planet has to offer, but we believe that our presence as travellers should always be a force for good – conserving habitats, preserving natural resources and protecting species.

In our view, we should all strive to preserve and regenerate the places we visit: from eliminating single-use plastics, to finding new, more effective ways to reduce and offset carbon emissions.

By expanding travel’s economic benefits, alleviating overcrowding and filtering tourism through to less-visited areas, we believe that travel’s exponential growth can be a positive force. Tourism should empower local communities, allowing hosts to capitalise on, and protect, their natural and cultural resources.

We know that reducing the environmental impact of transport is important to reducing the travel industry’s overall footprint. Collectively, the industry must work towards a range of measures, from emissions reporting and investment in new technology, to aligning on policy change.
