The impact of tourism on the environment, in general and specifically on the climate, is receiving plenty of attention. In 2008, the Centre for Sustainability, Tourism and Transport of Breda University of Applied Sciences and NRIT Research, in collaboration with NBTC-NIPO Research, published the (Dutch) pilot-report ‘Travelling large in 2005’. In this report the environmental impact of Dutch holiday behaviour was calculated. The carbon footprint was one tool used for this: the emissions of carbon dioxide are responsible for climate change. We now present the eleventh volume in this series, presenting the carbon footprint of holidays by the Dutch in 2002, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. This report not only contains a complete overview of the impacts of Dutch tourists on the climate in 2017, but also presents the development of the holiday carbon footprint through the years 2002-2005-2008-2009-2010-2011-2012-2013-2014-2015-2016-2017.
