Climate change is one of the single most important global environmental issues
facing the world today and is emerging as a major topic in tourism studies.
Tourism is one of the world’s largest industries; it both contributes to, and
will be notably affected by, climate change. Given the emerging global legal
frameworks to reduce emissions of greenhouse gasses, growing costs of carbon
and pro-environmentally orientated customers, carbon management in tourism is a
necessity. Tourism must take responsive actions to enable travel and tourism to
deliver the peak experiences that tourists seek with a lower carbon footprint.
Carbon Management in Tourism is the first book devoted to carbon emission
reductions and to showcase a wide range of practical mitigation measures. This
book provides a comprehensive overview by combining theory and practice of
climate change mitigation in global tourism, addressing various levels of
scale, such as global, national, and regional tourism systems, as well as
individual tourism businesses. It integrates a thorough scientific discussion
of the causes of emissions growth, along with an analysis of the major options
to reduce emissions, and state-of-the-art carbon management practices. Detailed
case studies provide examples of tourism businesses or destinations that have
successfully reduced emissions of greenhouse gasses, with consideration of
economic and socio-cultural issues integrated throughout.
This timely and important volume is essential reading for undergraduate and
postgraduate students as well as academic researchers interested in Tourism,
Environmental Management, Geography and Carbon Management.
