The carbon footprint of transportation, accommodation, and various tourism-related activities has contributed significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. With climate change posing unprecedented risks to natural and cultural heritage sites, biodiversity, and local communities, the tourism sector must positively collaborate and act urgently to reduce its climate impact. The industry can play a vital role in mitigating climate change and safeguarding destinations for future generations by introducing climate action measures, such as carbon neutrality.
