Sustainable transport and travel (also referred to as “soft mobility” or “sustainable mobility”) play an important role in the development of sustainable tourism as tourism-related transport, especially road and air traffic, is on the rise, and contributes considerably to greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and climate change. Developing and encouraging the use of different modes of transport with low impact on the environment, e.g. cycling, walking, car sharing, fuel-efficient transport systems and the use of electric vehicles, is a key to reducing the travelers’ ecological footprint. To achieve this, consistent and innovative sustainable mobility strategies and measures need to be formulated and introduced at destination and business level.
