Tourism is a burgeoning industry in the Philippines, with growth rates of 10% in tourist arrivals and 15% in visitor expenditures. Further, tourism contributes to 5% of global carbon emissions, and is seen to increase by 150% between 2005 and 2035 if no mitigation measures are taken. The Philippine food service sector, a key link in the tourism value chain, amounts to 4.3 billion USD, with restaurants comprising 87% of the food service sector in the Philippines. Wasted food may represent as much as 10 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, and is a main contributor to deforestation and the depletion of global water sources.

WWF is anticipating a forthcoming 3-year Project, Establish Low Carbon Consumption and Production in the Philippines with a focus on transforming foodservice, particularly dining establishments in key tourism destination cities around the country, into a low carbon industry.
