Sustainable Travel Ireland’s mission is to transform the Irish tourism industry into a regenerative business sector that respects and protects the environment, but also supports local communities and makes better places for people to live and work in.

Globally, tourism accounted for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions from 2009 to 2013*, making the sector a bigger polluter than the construction industry. 

However, as Ireland’s largest indigenous industry, tourism is vital to our economy, and particularly to the economy of rural Ireland.  

Speaking about the upcoming Inspiring Sustainable Tourism conference, Sustainable Travel Ireland Director Rob Rankin, stated:

“Tourists are also demanding more environmentally friendly and sustainable products and they are not happy when they can’t get them. So the tourism industry must step up – both to do the right thing by future generations and to meet their customers’ demand.

“Recent research released by shows that 71% of global travellers say that they want to travel more sustainably over the coming 12 months – and that’s a 10% increase over what was surfaced through the company’s 2021 data. So there is both a strong business case and an environmental imperative for tourism businesses to up their game when it comes to sustainability.

“Our Inspiring Sustainable Tourism conference aims to educate and empower businesses about the often simple actions they can take to put sustainability at the heart of their plans. And we’ll show them how it can help not just the planet, but also boost a business’s reputation and bottom line.” 

Tickets are available via Eventbrite and cost €85.20. Outsider readers that are keen to attend can enjoy a 20% discount on tickets by using the discount code Outsider2023 prior to checkout. Further discounts are available for students (email: 


* Research published in 2018 in Nature Climate Change found that worldwide, tourism accounted for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions from 2009 to 2013.
