Environmental practice within hotels : Opportunities and restrictions (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur hotell i Sverige arbetar med miljöfrågor idag, samt vilka möjligheter och begränsningar som finns för fortsatt utveckling av miljöarbetet. Genom kvalitativa metoder som intervjuer, observationer och litteraturstudier har författarna undersökt tre hotell och Destination Sigtuna, ett nätverk för hållbar turism, utifrån fyra fokuspunkter: noll slöseri, hållbara material, lokal och hållbar mat samt hållbart vatten. Alla de hotell som undersökts har en eller flera miljöcertifieringar, samt bedriver ett miljöarbete av eget engagemang. Miljöarbetet bedrivs i olika omfång, beroende av olika faktorer i omgivningen. De möjligheter och begränsningar som författarna ser för en utveckling av miljöarbetet är bland annat engagemang, ansvarskänsla, samt den lokala omgivningen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine how hotels in Sweden work with environmental issues today, and the possible opportunities and restrictions for a continued development of their environmental practices. The authors have examined three hotels and the organization Destination Sigtuna, a network for sustainable tourism, through qualitative methods such as interviews, observations and literature studies. The authors have focused on four categories; zero waste, sustainable materials, local and sustainable food and sustainable water. All the hotels in this paper have one or several environmental certifications, and conduct environmental practices through their own commitment. The practice is conducted to different degrees depending on a range of circumstances. The opportunities and restrictions that the authors see for development of environmental work are commitment, responsibility and the local surroundings among others.
