Travel is one of the pleasures of life. But how can you enjoy travel while minimizing your impact on the environment, communities and wildlife? What does sustainable or responsible tourism truly mean? And what eco-friendly choices are available when you go on a business trip or a holiday? As the global debate over how to address our environmental impact grows more urgent, we’ll discuss practical ways that you can enjoy travel while also making eco-friendly choices. And we’ll look at what solutions the travel industry has to offer.
