 Carbon Mitigation & Offsetting
 Mitigation of climate change involves taking
  actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  and to enhance (carbon) sinks (i.e. reduce the
  extent of global warming) (STCRC, 2009)
 Offsetting – A carbon offset is an investment in
  a project or activity that reduces greenhouse
  gas (e.g. tree planting, renewable energy)
   CARBON OFFSET
 ‘Carbon offsets represent a reduction in greenhouse
  gases, or enhancement of greenhouse gas removal
  from the atmosphere. Carbon offsets are tradeable
  and often used to offset all or part of another
  person or organisation’s emissions’
  Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. 2010.
  National Carbon Offset Standard. www.climatechange.gov.au

1. Tourism operator buying carbon offsets for business
2. Travellers paying for an optional carbon offset (e.g.
   airlines, transport, hotels, tours, festivals, conferences)
   Qld Tourism & Carbon Offsetting
 Tourism Qld -Offsetting your Carbon Footprint
  National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS)
  (excludes renewable energy, forestry – in Kyoto Protocol)
  Ecofund Qld (Qld govt. broker of carbon offset projects)
  http://www.ecofund.net.au
 Qld Tourism Industry Council (2008) Offsets advice
  1. Forestry Projects (time limit, drought, bushfires-TQ, QTIC;
     lack of scientific research, large monocultures-QTIC)
  2. Energy Projects (more sustainable than tree planting;
                         compliant with National Standard-TQ)
 Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011
  – carbon credits for Australian forestry & soil carbon projects

  Carbon Offset
   We have taken a very proactive position on climate change
   because we view it as a very serious threat to the reef
   environment in which we operate. We are achieving a “Zero
   Carbon Footprint” by offsetting our direct emissions via
   “additional” future forest sink offsets supplied by
   Greenfleet Australia. www.greenfleet.org.au
    (5% of reef visitors pay for carbon offset option)
http://www.greenisland.com.au/environment/eco-certification/
  CARBON NEUTRAL
 „Balancing the amount of carbon dioxide
  released into the atmosphere with an equal
  amount of carbon dioxide that has been
  sequestered or offset‟ (DRET, 2009)
 Carbon emissions are measured & reduced
  with remaining or residual emissions offset
 Carbon Neutral tourism operator: Hidden

Carbon Mitigation in Tourism
  AIM OF RESEARCH
 Review carbon offsetting & mitigation
  measures implemented by Qld tourism
  enterprises (i.e. hotels, tour operators,
  attractions, transport) in response to
  climate change and sustainability

    Objectives of Carbon Survey
 Evaluate what carbon mitigation and carbon
  offset measures have been adopted by different
  Qld tourism enterprises & why (or why not)
 Examine the influence of eco-certification
  schemes & government sustainability programs
  (e.g. ecoBiz) in mitigation & carbon offsetting
 Review the role of Tourism Queensland & tourism
  industry associations in promoting sustainability,
  mitigation & carbon offsetting
 Assess environmental motives of Qld tourism
  owner-operators for carbon mitigation/offsetting
      Carbon Mitigation Survey
 Based on carbon mitigation measures listed in
  certification programs, tourism agency websites,
  tourism operator websites, climate change guides
 24 questions in the tourism survey in 3 sections:
 A: Tourism Business, B: Climate Change (Mitigation)
 C: Carbon Offsetting - checklists, ratings, comments
 Pilot survey of 5 Qld tourism operators not certified
 Focus on environmentally certified Queensland
  tourism enterprises (Climate Action & ECO-certified,
  Earthcheck, ecoBiz, Eco-friendly Star) 83 surveys
 Survey sent to 380 Qld tourism operators by email,
  post, phone/personal interview; response rate 25%
   Mitigation strategies for tourism
 Tourism is a leader in mitigating the effects of
  climate change
    Energy efficient management strategies and
     building design techniques
    Water and Waste management techniques
    Adoption of green codes of ethics/best practice
    Accreditation with certification programs such
     as ecoBiz, ECO-certification, Climate Action
     certification, Earth Check, Green Globe etc
Examples of mitigation strategies
             Climate Change &
             Australian Tourism
 Impact of climate change and carbon emissions on
  ecosystems (e.g. Great Barrier Reef, coasts, rainforests)
 Tourism is a priority sector in Queensland ClimateSmart
  Adaptation Action Plan 2007-2012
 Climate change: A brief guide for tourism (QTIC, 2008)
 Climate Change Guide: Mitigation and adaptation
  measures for Australian tourism operators (DRET, 2009)
 Great Barrier Reef Tourism Climate Change Action

       Rationale for Carbon Mitigation
     Consumers
   Concern about climate change, transport emissions
    (plane travel), & environmental impacts of tourism
   Growing demand for green travel products – UK/Europe & US
    travel wholesalers demand „green credentials‟ from suppliers
    Business
   Reduce business operating costs through energy, water &
    waste management (i.e. eco-efficiency & carbon mitigation)
   Tourism operator compliance with environmental regulations
    & carbon measurement or reporting (become „carbon neutral‟)
   Carbon emissions audit for certification programs, e.g. EcoBiz,
    EarthCheck, Climate Action, Planet Safe Partnership etc.

10%, $300pa, $500, $1,250, $3,000, $10,000, $20,000, $50,000pa, not sure
– about $50 p.a. off electricity bill & we divert over 26,000 litres of solid waste from
landfill through recycling program, 10% off power bill, minimal, initial outlay costs –
potential long term saving 5-10%, not compared as always tried to be environmentally
friendly, info not available at this time, don‟t know, unsure, unknown

Attraction: significant, we use only renewable power, reduction in electricity
consumption offset by increase in price, nil any savings are offset by additional costs

Why do you prefer this type of offset project?
Convention Centre: It is seen to have the greatest impact on reducing
   long term emissions (RE), Because our team can participate in the
   planting (TP), To offset the number of trees cut down each year (TP)
Attraction: We are already doing this (RE, TP), It is easy to action (TP),
   Lessen environmental impact & contribute personally (EE)
Tourism Organisation:
   One of the easiest ways to begin is to offset our airline travel which
   already has an easy system in place for us to contribute to (TP)

 Carbon Offsetting Survey Results
Accommodation – Reasons for NOT carbon offsetting
 ‘We really haven‟t researched the options for carbon offsetting our
    business‟
„I don‟t know what is offered and what is the benefit to participate in such a
    program. I am not sure what a carbon offset program is about‟
„No-not enough money‟, „Do not have the time‟
„As I operate a management rights business I have no control over my
    product i.e. the individual apartments that I rent out‟
„Corporate policy & direction not completed‟
„Emissions now very low with dependence on solar array for power‟
„Too small with “negligible” footprint‟
„Design of operation-maintain minimal level of emissions‟
„By not clearing our land‟, „Conservation agreement to protect existing tree
    canopy (90% density) over approx. 16ha‟
„Poor information and suspicious about offset money actually being used for
    realistic carbon sequestration projects not going to administration/
     regulation/government coffers/dodgy tax offset schemes‟
Carbon Offsetting Survey Results
Tour Operator – Reasons for NOT carbon offsetting
„Financial expense‟, „Cost-yet to be convinced‟, „When required by law‟,
„Would like to but struggling to run business & pay of bank loan on
    new boat that is more enviro friendly‟
„We are a sail boat & use the wind power wherever possible‟
„Our footprint is virtual 0 because of what we do and how we do it
    [kayak]‟
„Offset ourselves as 1. have 2000ha nature refuge that (is) under a
    perpetual Conservation Agreement... – do not register the offsets
    2. The tourism product is low impact walking‟

Tourist Attraction - Reasons for NOT carbon offsetting
„Wildlife park won‟t need it‟
„We already use hydropower & have enough trees planted to offset
   most of the emissions from our activities‟
What eco-certified operators are
doing to reduce carbon emissions
  Calculating and reducing their carbon
   emissions (i.e. energy, water, waste)
  Using renewable power (solar/hydro)
  Having an EarthCheck audit, or
   investing in energy efficiency products
  Participating in Sustainable Regions
   Program, ecoBiz, or Low Carbon Diet
  Offsetting the emissions created by their
   business by planting/retaining trees or
   by purchasing carbon credits
    Carbon Reduction by Eco-operators
   Environmentally certified Qld tourism operators are more
    proactive in carbon reduction measures.
   Over half (54%) are nature tourism owner/operators.
   88% consider climate change an important tourism issue.
   88% strongly agree/agree that it is important to reduce the
    carbon footprint (emissions) of their tourism business.
   41% (n=34) are auditing their carbon emissions, while
    34% (n=28) will do a future carbon audit of their business.
   Av. no. of emission reduction actions adopted is 9 (50%).
   Key motives for emissions reduction actions are to:
    Attract environmentally aware tourists, Differentiate
    business as „climate friendly‟, & Cost savings.
    Carbon Offsetting by Eco-operators
   24 tourism enterprises employ carbon offsetting, 31 intend to.
   Emissions offset include electricity, fuel, gas, & staff air travel.
    Most enterprises adopt their own carbon offset/sequestration
     project (i.e. tree planting) or partner with conservation groups.
   A few operators offer offset options to visitors (n=14) or buy
    carbon credits from Australian offset providers (n=13) such as
    Greenfleet & Climate Friendly (e.g. larger tourism enterprises).
   Most tourism operators prefer carbon offsets based on Tree
    Planting, Energy Efficiency or Renewable Energy.
   The main motives for having a carbon offset program were to:
    Attract tourists concerned about travel emissions, & Market a
    business as „climate friendly‟ tourism. Personal concern & the
    „right thing to do‟ for nature also ranked highly as motives.
    Carbon Mitigation - What’s next?
 Carbon Tax from 1 July 2012 (0.7-1.2% loss in
 sales revenue & reduce net profits 10% - TTF, 2011)
 6c/litre increase in off-road diesel or manage offsets
 Use biofuels in new vehicles & purchase GreenPower
 Carbon Credits Act 2011 – opportunities for Carbon
  Credits from carbon sequestration on private land
 Offer ‘Green Choices’ to visitors (optional offset fee;
  tree planting; Reverse the Effect: vehicle emissions;
  donate to CVA ‘Action for Climate Change’ $25/tCO2)
 Market Green Actions at tourism destinations e.g.
  Scenic Rim Escapes; Planet Safe Partnership-TTNQ
