For the second consecutive year, the National Tourism Fair will measure and offset their impact
SERNATUR is working hard to contribute to the growth of tourism in Chile, always under a sustainable framework. To this end, since 2010 when the Sustainability Subunit was created – within the Environment and Land Planning Unit (Office of Studies) – several initiatives have been developed in order to advance in that line. One of them was the decision to measure and mitigate the impact of one of the most important promotional events, which is the National Tourism Fair – Chile is YOURS. Although this event promote meanly sustainable tourism development, the production of an event of such magnitude involves a great level of carbon emissions.
That is why SERNATUR has decided to offset the event’s carbon emissions and to certify the process with SCX, for the second consecutive year. Carbon credits that will be used come from effective emission reductions that have been certified by international parties. Once completed the certification process, the credits will be removed from international registry and associated with this initiative.
