Tourism & Transportation
Climate action is becoming increasingly critical in tourism. Tourism is responsible for 8% of global emissions, and climate change is affecting many of the areas travelers seek. We believe that tourism, with an intentional focus on environmental and cultural sustainability, can be regenerative, helping to restore natural ecosystems and preserve cultures while operating with a low or carbon neutral footprint.
Our services include:
Carbon footprint reporting and carbon neutrality
Strategic planning for sustainable development
Water & energy audits
Aligning business metrics with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Alternative energy solutions & action plans
Employee training & engagement
Educational infographics & content
Carbon neutral events

"Synergy was an integral part of our recent strategic planning exercise for the Hotel Association of Canada’s Green Key Global program. Synergy’s wealth of knowledge, specific to our industry, gave them the invaluable ability to work directly on our behalf with members, Board of Directors and other stakeholders to deliver an outstanding final product. Green Key Global is better positioned for future and long-term success as a direct result of our work with Synergy."
