Transforming Tourism: Nudging Green Behaviours

Influencing the behaviours of staff and guests must be a key part of any plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve broader sustainability goals in the accommodations sector. Through evidence-based communications and nudging techniques, significant progress can be made with relatively little financial investment.

These resources were featured in a series of workshops and webinars that we ran as part of the ‘Transforming Tourism Value Chains’ project to accelerate more resource efficient, low carbon development, led by the United Nations Environment Programme and supported by the International Climate Initiative on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The workshop and webinar series took place within the framework of the One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme and in collaboration with UNWTO.  Click here for the project website.
