Consumers are ''increasingly pro-active'' about carbon footprint

Consumers are becoming ever more aware of their carbon footprint and the impact of their travel choices on the environment, a climate change expert has claimed.

Aviation companies are reporting increasing concern from their customers about their contribution to climate change and the possibilities for carbon offsetting, according to Simon Stokes, business development manager at Carbon Footprint.

He also claimed that growing numbers of consumers are looking to choose airlines that have a strong record in reducing their impact on the environment.

"What we are finding now is that there is an ever-increasing move from companies coming to us and saying ''our consumers care about this issue, what can we do about it?" Mr Stokes said.

"There is a large feeling that carbon footprinting is a massive issue, that it is important, and people want to do something pro-active about it," he added.

Environmental group Friends of the Earth has criticised carbon offsetting, claiming it is "a smoke screen against action to cut emissions".ADNFCR-1235-ID-18356759-ADNFCR
