Transport-related CO2 emissions of the tourism sector: modelling results

Transport-related emissions from tourism are expected to account for 5.3% of all anthropogenic emissions by 2030, up from 5% in 2016, according to a report published by the International Transport Forum (ITF) and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). Therefore, UNWTO calls for enhanced cooperation between the transport and tourism sectors to transform tourism for climate action. The report titled, ‘Transport-related CO2 Emissions of the Tourism Sector: Modelling Results,’ also notes that while the number of tourists is increasing, the sector is progressing towards low-carbon travel, and emissions per passenger kilometer are expected to decrease over the next decade.
