The earth’s atmosphere now holds enough carbon dioxide in stock, that even if we stopped emitting completely tomorrow, we still have a serious challenge to solve in dealing with the carbon dioxide already out there. Tourism businesses rely on planes, ships, and heavy road vehicles not only to transport guests, but also to serve them once they reach a destination. At this time, tourism-related emissions are thought to account for 8 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. As tourism continues to grow in step with global economic development, these emissions are expected to also grow. The tourism industry must do its part now to help bring about a solution.
In this easy to understand webinar learn about the carbon removal opportunity for the tourism industry from David Hone, author of Putting the Genie Back and Chief Climate Advisor to Shell. Mr. Hone is also an esteemed board member of the International Emissions Trading Association; the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and the Global Capture and Storage Institute.
The webinar was attended by representatives from the ATTA and WTTC and includes the question and answer discussion that followed Mr. Hone’s presentation.
