Options 'are available' for carbon-concerned travellers

Options 'are available' for carbon-concerned travellers
Many travellers do not appear to be concerned about their carbon footprint but there are numerous options available for those who are, according to a leading travel association.

Those choosing to fly can take advantage of a variety of carbon-offsetting schemes that have been launched within the aviation industry, explained Sean Tipton, spokesman for the Association of British Travel Agents.

At the same time, he highlighted Europe's high-speed rail network offers an alternative form of transport for anyone looking to reduce the environmental impact of their travel.

"People do say that they are concerned but if you look at the number of people flying; it's not dropping," Mr Tipton claimed.

"There are initiatives being set up by the industry, so that gives customers the option to offset if they wish," he added. "If you don't want to fly, rail is an increasingly attractive option."

Figures provided by the International Air Transport Association revealed that the aviation industry contributes two per cent of global carbon emissions, and twelve per cent of the transport sector's emissions.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18376880-ADNFCR
