The tourism sector produces 8% of total carbon dioxide emissions and the citadel of Machu Picchu seeks to become the first carbon-neutral tourist destination in the world .
The goal is to reduce carbon emissions and greenhouse gases. Darwin Baca, district mayor of Machu Picchu, highlighted the importance of the participation of private companies and the commitment of the authorities to achieve this purpose.
In this sense, Aje and Inkaterra join forces to take action towards this goal and work for the conservation of nature. Part of the measures to incorporate climate action in the tourism sector and, at the same time, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, are:
- One million trees of native species will be planted , allowing the recovery of more than 700 hectares of cultural heritage.
- It will work to control forest fires together with the National Service of Natural Areas Protected by the State (Sernanp).
In this way, the historic sanctuary will be able to reactivate tourism, with all the biosecurity measures to avoid contagion by Covid-19 and fight against climate change.
