What is sustainable travelling?

Travel during the pandemic has been difficult at times and impossible at others, with airlines, governments and institutions imposing strict and sometimes tough-to-follow entry requirements and guidelines that have ultimately led to a complete deterioration of the industry as a whole.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the deterioration of the travel industry initially led to a dramatic reduction in carbon emissions, but a recent study showed that after the initial shockwave, emissions bounced back. Why was this? And perhaps more importantly, how can we buck the trend and make sure that emissions not only stay lower than pre-pandemic levels, but continue to drop?
