Tourism Emissions Program

Tourism Emissions Reduction Program

A five-stage program that helps you to develop an emissions reduction plan and build habit in the key action areas to progress towards net zero.

TERC Program

This program will provide you with access to the ERC Protocol – a digital tool that can be used to estimate your business’s carbon footprint and then guide you through the development of a customised emissions reduction plan.

Your emissions reduction plan will contain simple, achievable actions and a timeframe for reducing your business’s emissions. This may include reducing business travel, for example, or installing LED lights.

The TICT recognises that increasingly, visitors to Tasmania are seeking sustainable and low carbon emitting travel options. This is why we are enabling FREE access to this user-friendly, fully accessible module to support tourism operators to reduce emissions across all areas of their businesses.

Program benefits:

  • No carbon knowledge required
  • Five stage path to follow
  • Estimate your emissions
