Tourism industry seriously needs to reconsider its business model

Published on : Friday, February 19, 2021

With each passing day, the future of Earth is becoming bleak. The trouble created by COVID-19 has not been enough to shift the route, nor has it prompted polluting sectors of the economy to reconsider the harms that they are inflicting on the planet.


Nowhere is this more perceptible than the global tourism sector. Before COVID-19, international aviation emissions, which were already a major contributor towards global warming were anticipated to potentially triple between 2015 and 2050. Likewise, emissions from cruise ships were also increasing.


The pandemic itself can be attributed to humanity’s ruthless damage to nature. Mass global tourism is also symbolic of this insatiable, growth-at-all-costs mentality.


Tourism brings many economic, social and cultural benefits. However, it’s high time that the industry seriously reconsiders its business model, and overall purpose, in a post-pandemic world.


The United Nations is urging the global tourism industry to address its sustainability challenges following COVID-19.
