Submission on Consultation on Tourism Policy

Ian Carey News, Submissions

A green economy should be a driver of competitiveness, security of supply and sustainability. The Green Economy should incorporate the whole economy rather than be a niche or a subset.

The UNEP definition of a Green Economy as one that results in “improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities” should form the basis for the government’s Green Economy Plan.

In this context, the tourism plan should: seek to count, profile and retain the existing green jobs; provide mechanisms for greening existing jobs; develop a vision of where new green jobs can be created both in the short and long term; and ensure that jobs that are created do not damage the potential of the Green Economy to deliver sustainable green tourism jobs in the future.
