Sustainability Week: Travel & The Triple Bottom Line (#14)
With sub-$400 roundtrips from the United States to Europe and Asia, travel before COVID-19 had never been more accessible. Though the democratization of travel is positive, the results were overtourism, pollution, and housing shortages in major tourist hubs around the world.
On the airline & hospitality side, real wages and the passenger experience have been a race to the bottom.
In this episode, we bring #nerdbird Kai onto the show to discuss the triple bottom line – people, planet, and profit – a new metric for sustainable success in the post-COVID-19 travel industry.
