Sustainable and Green Transition

The tourism sector, responsible for roughly 8% of global emissions, is under increasing pressure to adopt environmentally friendly practices. Transitioning to sustainability involves addressing multiple aspects, from curbing transportation emissions to minimising waste in accommodations and changing to local food sourcing.

A major hurdle for Europe involves reducing the carbon footprint of travel itself. Transportation is the biggest source of tourism-related emissions, so Europe must focus on cutting them down. Taking a multi-modal approach will be key to making European tourism more sustainable.

ETC advocates for efficient EU policies and funding to support sustainable cross-border mobility, decarbonise transportation, and assist European destinations in their climate action adaptation and mitigation.
