Travel is contributing to increasing carbon footprint

Published on : Wednesday, November 13, 2019

For long, travel has enjoyed a positive public profile associated with relaxation, personal growth, intercultural understanding and increased economic activity. At the same time, it has also contributed to increasing carbon footprint.

 

Transportation, especially, is frequently identified as an emissions villain, with aviation and shipping each contributing 3% to 5% of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions.

 

Consumers, especially in Europe, want to decrease their personal carbon footprint by vacationing closer to home, in the best interest of the planet.

 

Christ, CEO of Beyond Green Travel and chairman of the Travel Corporation’s TreadRight Foundation, has been the travel industry’s go-to sustainability consultant for decades, supporting best conservation and environmental procedures.

 

Among his current clientele is a global hotel brand developing a green resort.
