Whether your business has already begun its sustainability journey or is just starting out, the Australian Tourism Industry Council’s new five-stage Tourism Emissions Reduction Program can provide you with an estimated carbon emissions report and a tailored emissions reduction plan. 

Tourism businesses can access digital tools including an emissions estimator calculator and follow simple steps to develop a customised emissions reduction plan.

As a business progresses through the stages, they can easily share their own estimated carbon emissions report and their emissions reduction plan through a unique link on their website or via a convenient QR code. The link can be used to attract bookings online, and the QR code can make it easy to inform visitors whilst on premises so they can learn more about the business’ commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

With a growing number of visitors intentionally seeking out sustainable and environmentally conscious tourism businesses, those committing to this program will have an extra opportunity to distinguish themselves, demonstrate and talk about their commitment to sustainability, and reach new markets.
