The tourism industry accounts for 5 per cent of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. As one of Australia’s top tourism destinations, the Upper Blue Mountains has been chosen for a pilot project focussed on helping tourism businesses reduce their carbon footprint. Environmental auditors will work with tourism owners to identify opportunities to reduce their emissions from energy, water, waste and purchasing. Education programs will be rolled out at TAFE to upskill tradespeople to implement the review recommendations.
