In celebration of our 60th Anniversary in 2019, Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is proud to participate and become a leader in the Sustainability in Hospitality Movement. The resort has partnered with Pacific Marine Mammal Center, Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center, and Newport Bay Conservancy to implement new initiatives for a more sustainable resort and world.
With the hospitality and tourism industry labeled as one of the fastest-growing economic sectors in the world, the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) forecasts over 1.8 billion annual international arrivals by 2030. This significant increase in tourism has also led to rising pressure on the environment. According to the UNWTO, tourism contributes to 5% of global CO2 emissions, and if this is not managed sustainably, the consequential effects of climate change will take its toll.
