German travelers more and more become aware of the topic of sustainability. 86% attach importance to the conservation of the nature in the target country. 84% consider the reduction of CO2 emission while traveling necessary. However, this willingness faces a less energetic execution. Compensatory payments to make up for the CO2 emission of their travels are made by airline passengers rather reluctant.
After all, 17% of the Germans already consciously opt for environmentally friendly hotels. It is close to their hearts to save the environment, to preserve the biodiversity and to improve social standards. This is the result of a representative survey of the travel enterprise TUI which was conducted in the year 2017. Germany therewith is above the European average of 11%.
