How do we calculate it?
The carbon footprint of tourism is an indicator that reflects the incidence of greenhouse gases that it has when making a trip to our country.
With this calculator, the visitor can measure said impact in a simple way and comfortable
.The data provided is an approximation of the percentage of pollution produced by the trip, since we use few measurement indices to make it a friendly calculator and help raise awareness about this problem.
Next, we explain the calculations:
We can use different means of transport for our trip, so we use the following as a reference, which provide us with an average of grams of CO2 equivalent per passenger and kilometers traveled:
- Airplane (192)
- Car (121)
- Electric car (43)
- Motorcycle (53)
- Electric motorcycle (14)
- Bus (49)
- Train (33)
- Subway (30)
- High speed train (24)
- Ferri (18)
The choice of the place of rest also provides us with other means, being able to differentiate between hotels and other types of hostels that range from hostels, apartments, camping among others...
The calculations are made using the same metric, grams of CO2 equivalent per number of trips and overnight stays..
