Holiday Carbon Footprint
In 2017, ABTA’s Holiday Habits Report declared that 87% of Britons have taken a holiday in the past year. This insight has been applauded with great enthusiasm by agencies and companies in the travel industry, but the consequences of this discovery still seem to be unknown to most people.
As a matter of fact, the recent increase in tourism goes hand in hand with a rise in carbon emissions. CO2 emissions are predicted to reach the level of 50 metric tons by 2050 for the United Kingdom only.
However, these results might still underestimate the impact that tourism has on the environment, as they don’t consider the impact of greenhouse gas emissions besides CO2, as well as all the usual activities that tourists perform when on holiday.
Fortunately, being eco-friendly is something that anybody can do. This infographic by Greenmatch.co.uk shows you how to have a more sustainable holiday by implementing some simple tips that can make a real difference for our planet.
