Pre-COVID, the average Australian generated 1.7 tonnes carbon per person per year from international and domestic flights. A frequent flyer or someone flying long distances generates even more.
We don't yet have a technological solution to replace flying, but it's easy to cut back. Simply fly less. Zoom for catch-up or conference, enjoy local travel and think before you book.
We're all looking forward to holidays again post-COVID but there's plenty to enjoy right here in the region!
