Energy security is a significant concern to the travel and tourism industry, this especially being the case in the United States (US). In response, one of the largest destinations in the country has spearheaded two initiatives supporting changes in travel patterns. This regional spotlight commences with an overview of US environment and energy security concerns. It then reviews government-based policies supporting green practices before showcasing Drive Electric Orlando and Green Destination Orlando as exemplar initiatives promoting destination sustainability at the local level. The spotlight paper concludes by highlighting the efforts of the transportation sector in contributing to destination-wide sustainability. (C) 2014 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
