Even Holidays Can Be a Carbon Offset

Article excerpt

THE Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre (STCRC), the world's largest dedicated tourism research organisation, has launched a new online carbon calculator for holidaymakers in Australia.

A recent study from Roy Morgan Research revealed that 62 per cent of Australians are interested in participating in a carbon emission offset scheme for their holiday and leisure travel.

The new carbon calculator allows holidaymakers to plan a lower emissions holiday, for example, the calculator shows that staying in hotel or resort accommodation creates almost 18 times more carbon emissions than camping. If a family of four on a 10-day holiday chose to camp for even half of their trip, they would save 113kg of carbon emissions.

Use the carbon calculator's simple four step process to tailor your holiday requirements.
