The Tourist Climate Footprint

World Wildlife, 2009

The tourism industry is booming, the pressure on the last  "natural oases” is increasing. At the same time, tourism is more dependent on an intact environment than any other business sector. Tourists thus are at the same time responsible for and suffering from the damages caused.

Environmental damage directly or indirectly related to tourism is caused by climate-relevant emissions, by the usage of  drinking water, by waste and sewage disposal, by land consumption and by disturbances of flora and fauna, e.g. through noise exposure or light. In addition to the global environmental impacts, also the spatial and temporal concentration of travelling is ecologically relevant.

In contrast to tourism confined to Germany, when travelling to foreign countries water consumption (particularly in dry regions) and waste production gain in importance. Large hotel complexes are expanding and destroying coastal landscapes. Forests and mangroves are disap pearing. Water and energy consumption in holiday paradises is immensely high and more often than not causes great distress among the local populace.

 

How clean and green is  New Zealand tourism? Lifecycle and future environmental impacts

Murray Patterson, New Zealand Centre for Ecological Economics, Massey University

Garry McDonald, Landcare Research, Palmerston North

Landcare Research Science Series No. 24, 2004

The central argument of this report is that a broader assessment of the environmental impacts is required in order to fully evaluate the environmental performance of the tourism sector. To date, New Zealand research has focused on on-site and local-area environmental impacts of tourism activity. The overall aim of our study was to assess the indirect and future environmental effects, as well as the previously researched direct effects. This was achieved by constructing input-output economic-environmental accounts of the tourism sector. These accounts not only provide a platform for lifecycle assessment (indirect effects) and scenario analysis (future effects), but also allow environmental data to be integrated with data about the economic performance of the tourism sector.
