As we expand our carbon neutral destination program to additional islands, we will take the following considerations into account to ensure we are creating the greatest impact.
1. Climate Vulnerability
The islands’ communities and ecosystems are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
2. Local Support
There is support and desire for the carbon neutral destination program among local communities and leadership.
3. Tourism Dependence
The island relies on tourism as a key economic activity.
4. Global Significance
The island possesses unique value as a tourism destination due to its cultural and/or ecological significance.
5. Financial feasibility
The necessary funding can be obtained to support the implementation of the carbon neutral destination program.
