Hotel Companies’ Environmental Awareness & Commitment: A review of their web pages


Because of today’s complicated economic and political environment, businesses face increasing pressure to follow environmentally conscious principles; the hospitality industry is no exception. The purpose of this study is to increase our understanding of the extent to which pro-environmental policies are being implemented in the hotel industry, identify the best of these practices as a reference for hotels that are lagging behind in fulfilling their environmental responsibilities, and most of all to increase the environmental awareness of hoteliers and encourage more research on the development of pro-environmental practices in the hospitality industry. The results of the study and their implications are discussed.
