Folder Climate Change - Energy and Resource Efficiency


About this topic

Climate change is seen by many as one of the most important current challenges for the sustainability of tourism.  Its impact on tourism, and vice versa, requires fundamental changes in the way many destinations and businesses work.  More generally, there is a need to improve the efficiency of tourism practices, minimizing pollution and waste and the use of precious and non-renewable resources such as water and certain forms of energy.


Your Role

All tourism stakeholders must address the issue of climate change and the efficient use of energy and resources. This requires action at different governmental levels – national (legislation, funding), regional and local (planning & facilitiating) – but also by tourism businesses (product development, enterprises management) and by informed travellers (ethical and responsible consumer choices).
