Best in Responsible Tourism

  • Best in Responsible Tourism

    This year the judges are looking for the best initiative to reduce carbon emissions by a hospitality, transport or tourism business or destination.

    At the core of Responsible Tourism is the imperative to reduce the negative impacts of the sector and carbon emissions are having an increasingly negative impact on our environment globally.

    The judges are looking for examples of initiatives which can measure and report reductions in carbon emissions, NOT just for the largest reduction. The judges will take into account the effectiveness of the initiative, the cost to emissions reduction achieved, and the replicability of the initiative.

    We are looking for examples to inspire and educate others about the proven ways in which the carbon emissions of travel and tourism can be significantly reduced. The tourism industry contributes to global emissions through heating and cooling accommodation, cooking and refrigerating food, and through airlines, cruise boats, rail, coaches and cars. We are looking for initiatives which have made a measurable difference and which can be promoted to others for replication.
