ALLCOT, one of the participants of the CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR GLOBAL TOURISM Conference, organized by University College of Tourism of Murcia

“Every million tourists that Spain receives consumes 11 million liters of fuel, 2 million kilos of food and 300 million liters of water. And at the same time, they generate 300 million liters of wastewater, 25 million kilos of carbon dioxide and 1.5 million kilos of garbage. If Spain received almost 78 million tourists in 2017, draw your own conclusions … ”

These were some of the data explained by Federico Glikstein, Sales Director of ALLCOT, in his speech during the CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR GLOBAL TOURISM Conference, organized by University College of Tourism of Murcia.

Renowned businessmen participated in this event in which they talked about how to face the new challenges and opportunities that tourism presents today, a booming sector that has to adapt to new technologies, offer new experiences to the clients and adapt to their needs and requirements.

And, precisely, as Glikstein commented, customers are increasingly demanding in terms of sustainability and care of the environment. Therefore, companies in the sector can calculate, reduce and offset the carbon emissions they generate to meet these new needs.

The other participating companies were IURBAN, ITREM, AEPT, BIOSPHERETOURISM, Grupo ORENES and WAYNABOX.
