The project research gathers data relevant to the Tourism Queensland ‘Tourism Environmental Indicators’ (response to climate change by tourism operators and carbon offsetting). This research will evaluate:
- what carbon mitigation and carbon offset measures have been adopted by different Queensland tourism enterprises and why,
- the influence of eco-certification schemes, government sustainability programs and environmental motives for carbon offset measures by tourism owner-operators, and
- the role of Tourism Queensland and tourism industry associations in promoting environmental sustainability (carbon mitigation) and carbon offsetting by operators.
