  • HOW much time is left before doors close?  WHAT is the science telling us? +
  • 1.5°C (34.7°F) above pre-industrial level is the absolute ‘red line in the sand’ when a series of one-way doors start to close. Carbon Brief’s analysis for the IPCC’s 2021-2022 Assessment Report revealed that our world will likely exceed 1.5°C (34.7°F) between 2026 and 2042 (central estimate 2030 and 2032). Today, it is 1.2°C (34.16°F). Events are occurring to amplify warming. 2026 is in less than 5 years.

NOW Press Room

As we have said on so many different occasions, sustainability and wellbeing are completely intertwined, but who will lead the charge in the travel & tourism industry that seems to be lagging behind compared to some of its industry peers? Organisations like It Must Be NOW are clearly ahead of the game, setting best practices, offering certification tools and creating signalling effects. We posit that as the climate emergency intensifies, such organisations will put into motion a snowball / cascading effect. Expansion will therefore be exponential, not linear. Latecomers and doubters beware!
