Emissions from tourism on Gotland (English)
Abstract [en]

The tourism industry is accounted for high monetary revenues but is also responsible for a high amount of emissions globally. In this study the emissions from the tourism sector are discussed with a special focus on the Swedish island, Gotland. Because Gotland is an island there are limited ways to travel to the island. There are generally three ways to get to the island, by ferry, airplane or by a cruise ship. Approximately 70% of the tourists travel by ferry and it is therefore the focus of this study. In this study emissions from tourism were calculated by the travel to and from the island, and during the stay. Emissions from transport on the island to various destinations were calculated as well as emissions from accommodations. The result from the study shows that the tourism on Gotland has far lower emissions than the general global tourism. This is mostly due to the low emissions from the electric production in Sweden.

Abstract [sv]

Turism står för höga ekonomiska intäkter samtidigt som den står för höga utsläpp globalt. I studien diskuteras utsläpp från turism med fokus på den svenska ön, Gotland. Eftersom Gotland är en ö, är färdmedel till ön begränsade. Generellt finns det tre sätt att resa till ön, via färja, flygplan eller kryssningsfartyg. Cirka 70% av besökarna reser till ön med färja och är därför i fokus under studien. I studien beräknades turismens utsläpp genom resa, till och från ön samt under vistelsen. Under vistelsen beräknades utsläpp från transport på ön, till olika destinationer samt utsläpp från boende. Resultaten från studien pekar på att en turist på Gotland har mycket lägre växthusgasutsläpp än den genomsnittliga globala turisten. Den största anledningen är de låga utsläppen från svensk elproduktion.
