Responsible Travel and the climate crisis
Responsible tourism creates many benefits to local communities and the conservation of natural and cultural heritage. You can read specific evidence of this on every vacation page.
Our vacations also generate CO2 emissions that contribute to the climate crisis. We have also included CO2 information and advice on every vacation page.
Finally, because Governments as well as travelers have a responsibility to act, we’ve consulted with experts and NGOs to create a plan for aviation and climate change, and are lobbying Governments to adopt it. Read about The Green Flying Duty.
