Understanding Sustainable Travel

Embracing a more sustainable and conscious travel

Sustainable travel entails practices of minimizing negative impacts of tourism while maximizing benefits to local ecosystems that include the local communities, cultures, their economy and the environment.  In an era where our planet faces unprecedented environmental challenges, the way we travel has great significance.. Did you know that tourism contributes to more than 5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, with transportation accounting for 90 percent of this? By 2030, a 25% increase in CO2-emissions from tourism compared to 2016 is expected. From 1,597 million tons to 1,998 million tons as per The WorldCounts.

At the core of sustainable travel lies consciousness – mindful awareness of the outcome of our actions.

 Every choice we make for our holiday determines the sustainability of our journey. Traveling during off-season, choosing destinations closer to home, eco-friendly accommodation, eating at local restaurants and shopping at local boutiques are a few ways in which one can reduce their negative footprint and establish carbon positive patterns for traveling. 

By making conscious travel choices, we can protect the planet, support local economies, preserve local cultures & heritage and empower local communities. Often, we stop at reducing our carbon footprint, however, with Azurom Travel, we can plan to make your next holiday de luxe more meaningful and sustainable.
