Survey: 84% Of Travellers Will Consider Offsetting Emissions
Travellers want to make significant changes to their behaviour to travel sustainably as a new global survey by travel information company Lonely Planet reveals, Travel Daily News reports. Lonely Planet’s annual Travellers’ Pulse survey, which polled over 24,500 people worldwide, showed 84 percent of respondents said they would consider offsetting their emissions in the future, where only 31 percent had done so in the past.
Seventy percent of travellers said they had purposefully travelled in a low-impact way in the past, (for example catching a bus rather than flying) and over 90 percent of people said they would or might do so in the future.
Travellers also have good intentions when it comes to protecting the environment. Although 36 percent of people had never purposefully considered the environment in their past travels, 93 percent of people said they would or might purposefully partake in environmentally friendly travel in the future.
