The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is continuing its mission to expand the Carbon Neutral Tourism sector in Thailand, in accordance with the Thai government’s Bio-Circular-Green or BCG Economy Model.
TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn stated that the carbon-neutral tourism initiative helps increase the value, creativity, and competitiveness of Thai tourism products and services on the international market. It also boosts Thailand’s attractiveness to environmentally conscious, high-quality tourists.
Utilizing tourism resources in a cost-effective manner to maximize benefits, TAT is also working to build capacity, develop and expand carbon-neutral tourism management in a way that is suitable for tourism operators, thereby encouraging participation in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Emphasis will be placed on transforming conventional business tourism into low-carbon tourism, with the end goal of achieving tourism with a reduced environmental impact.
TAT is now promoting five pilot business units in three business types – communities, farm stays, and smart farms – in the provinces of Phetchaburi, Samut Songkhram, Kanchanaburi, as well as Nakhon Ratchasima, and Nakhon Pathom.
