ABSTRACT
This paper investigates the impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and renewable energies on Romanian inbound tourism along with other economic, social and geographical variables, such as bilateral trade, population, distance and education. It aims to stress the need of respecting green environmental principles as the main instrument of attracting foreign tourists to Romanian destinations, for the future sustainable development of the sector. A panel analysis, including 3 models, was used to study the impact of GHG emissions in 23 generating countries for the period 1993-2008. All 3 models proved to be significant and underlined a medium-high influence of GHG emissions and a low-medium influence of renewable energies on international tourism flows to Romania. Greater attention is required to study of impact of GHG emissions and the use of renew able energy in tourism, to better understand the mechanism that could support sustainable tourism development.
