Analysis of sustainability policy around Norrköping's hotel : A qualitative analysis of the sustainability policy for two hotels in central Norrköping, The Lamp and Best Western Princess Hotel. (English)
Abstract [en]

We have chosen to study the sustainability policy for two famous hotels that located in the middle of Norrkoping. The hotels are The Lamp and the Best Western Princess Hotel, they have different standards about foodservice, but they have common goals about environmental requirements that should be implemented. The environmental requirements imply that the hotels should work with sustainability policy to become environmental certificated for example about food, cleaning and waste management.

The purpose with this essay is to see if the chosen hotels work with the sustainability policy and environmental aspects that leads to the sustainability tourism in the hotel sector.

To be able to study these described environmental aspects and to also get answers on our question formulations, we have interviewed persons that work in the hotels within the area that we have chosen to focus on. With the help of our informants’ knowledge and our theory connection to sustainability tourism, we have analyzed the hotels work with environmental performance standards and sustainability tourism. We have also discussed how the hotels see themselves as environmental-friendly from without the touristy perspective.

The results we got on this essay were:

  • Both the hotels have daily routines for cleaning and waste management.
  • The interviewed persons are aware about the environmental work and the requests that refer to restrain the negative environmental effect.
  • The food products and service that the hotels use are environmental-friendly.
