    This paper examines the carbon footprint associated with tourism spending in a regional economy. Using
    an inputeoutput framework, the method adopted permits an analysis of the carbon embodied in both
    domestically produced and imported goods and services consequent on tourism consumption in the
    region. In this way the analysis comprises a statement of environmental externalities which can be set
    beside a developing Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) framework and which also provides useful information
    on selected externalities associated with tourism consumption.
