Travel's Contribution to Global Emissions

Emissions are created by many aspects of modern travel, at differing levels

Our dream for Tomorrow’s Air is to mobilize collective action for a return to the atmosphere we had in the past, before an overload of greenhouse gas emissions - especially carbon dioxide - threatened Earth’s stable climate.

Planes take the brunt of the blame for carbon emissions associated with travel, but they’re not the only culprit. 
Lodging, meals and shopping all contribute as well. 
When considering all the aspects of travel, researchers found that 8 percent of all emissions could be attributed to travel. 
With annual emissions at about 37B tons, we estimate that about 3 billions tons of that total is attributable to travel. 
The researchers used data collected between 2009 and 2013 however, so we assume this percentage to be even higher.

Uniting and empowering travelers.
