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.
