    Abstract

    The concept of green tourism is of growing importance, especially for the hospitality industry that is renowned for the excessive use of natural resources. In order to cater for the growing green consumer and gain competitive advantage, hotels need to ensure that they are doing a sufficient amount to meet the principles of environmental management and that these are communicated effectively to the consumer. This dissertation seeks to examine how hotels in Portsmouth apply principles of environmental management, in order to work towards a ‘green tourism’ ideal. An investigation into which stages of the environmental management process are applied and how these are marketed to the community were conducted through the use of telephone interviews and postal questionnaires to hotel managers. An analysis of the community awareness and hotel workers perspectives were investigated and qualitative and quantitative data was collected to gain an insight into other stakeholders of green tourism.
