- Firstly, we divide the energy consumption (EC) and carbon emission (CE) of Jiangxi’s tourism industry into three groups and account them respectively. Then, we analyze the drivers of the total CE (Tc) by using the Arithmetic Mean Decomposition Index (AMDI) method based on the Kaya identity. Results show that the total EC (Te) is 6.78 PJ in 2001, and it grows quickly up to 58.07 PJ with an average annual increase rate of 19.6%. Similarly, the Tc is 0.77 Mt in 2001, and it increases to 6.58 Mt in 2013 with the same average annual increasing rate of 19.6%. Especially in 2003, the Tc gets the least growth amount of 0.02 Mt and increasing rate of 2.2% due to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndromes (SARS) wreaks havoc. These mean people prefer to spend more and more time on the tourism activities from 2001 to 2013. However, the cumulative contribution of the population to the Tc’s growth is the biggest one (100.1%) and the other factor’s contribution can almost be ignored. This denotes the major driving factor of the Tc’s growth is the population itself. Therefore, to reduce the carbon emission of tourism, the consistent implementation of energy structure, energy-efficiency improvement policies, etc. is extremely needed in Jiangxi of China.
