“The vast range of contributions inevitably highlights many interesting case studies and best practice that can be used by tourism and hospitality students and practitioners for inspiration. . . . Its diversity and breath also constitute its main strength, and the book can be a useful addition to the libraries of tourism and hospitality educational institutions, particularly the ones of a more technical nature.”

This new book focuses on the important concern of sustainability in tourism and hospitality industry. As the world’s natural resource base is limited, the world is looking for solutions in the domains of energy, water, alternate building materials, resource redeployment, and sustainable livelihoods as well. The tourism and hospitality industry is a large deployer of natural and created resources.

Some of the themes the book addresses include:

  • designing sustainable restaurants

  • designing green hotels
  • energy conservation in hotels- a Green Approach
  • technology and sustainability
  • marketing sustainability to consumers
  • sustainable culinary practices
  • sustainable employee practices
  • sustainable equipment design for the hospitality industry
  • sustainable tourism practices
  • sustainable transport practices
  • sustainable tourism destinations/cities
The book takes sustainability beyond the realms of external factors that matter to an organization. The authors look at various constituents of the hospitality sector and analyze each of those from a sustainability standpoint. The book includes case studies that are global in nature and that show how sustainable applications can be used and how concerns can be addressed. Environmental challenges are also discussed.
