Energy, Climate and Tourism

A Dynamic Standardization Process for the Planet

Author(s): Erick Leroux, Jean-Marc Lusson

Book Description

This book approaches the issues of climate, energy, and tourism in an original way, illustrating the place of energy in contemporary society through examples taken from tourism. It ponders the ways in which negative effects can be controlled at the municipal or other local or regional levels, and provides a powerful answer: the implementation of tourism standards. It identifies and offers background to many normative texts dealing with the issues of energy, climate and tourism, making it easier to understand the works of standardisation bodies, such as the International Organization for Standardization and Eurostat.
