TUI presented itself and the B&B Initiative at the Reisepavillon in Munich
The Department Environmental Management/Sustainable Development of TUI AG presented itself at the Reisepavillion - International exhibition for different travelling. The Reisepavillion, which took place from 25.02. to 02.03. in Munich, is a worldwide unique forum for sustainable tourism.
The focus of the presentation of TUI was on the subject of "Business and Biodiversity". The activities of TUI regarding the conservation of biodiversity and the Business and Biodiversity Initiative were presented in a number of side events. Also, TUI presented together with the Ministry of Environment of the Balearic Islands a joint initiative for a recently signed agreement for sustainable development on the Balearic Islands.
Beginning in summer 2009 a TUI forest will be developed on Mallorca. A 48ha area, which was destroyed by heavy forest fires, will be successively reforested with endemic plants. Beginning in June 2009 every customer, who is flying to the Balearic Island, is automatically contributing to reforestation and conservation of the forest: From every booking a fixed amount will go to the project to finance part of the forest.
