1.1 Background Of The Study
Green management has grown in popularity among industry and academia as a way to mitigate the impact of industrial waste and the harms caused by conventional organizations and products. 2020 (Li et al.). Stakeholders and scholars have pushed business organizations to develop policies that advance social, economic, and environmental goals. Kim, Y. J., et al., 2019). In accordance with the efforts of business organizations to reduce waste and industrial hazards. Environmental concerns have compelled businesses to implement environmentally friendly practices and place a premium on their overall environmental performance. 2021) (Ahmed et al. Tourism, which includes the hospitality industry, has grown to be one of the most valuable commercial activities on a global scale due to its ability to stimulate economic development (Bhutto et al., 2021; World Travel & Tourism Council, 2020). The tourist industry has transported 1.5 billion foreign travelers in the previous 60 years, growing at a 3.8 percent annual rate. This amount increased global tourism spending by 1.5 trillion dollars from 495 billion and contributed 7% to goods and service exports (UNWTO, 2019, 2020). The hotel industry is becoming an increasingly important component of worldwide tourist development. The hospitality industry has been clearly identified as one of the most energy-intensive industries. Due to the hotel's activities, it uses a significant quantity of resources and generates an excessive amount of waste, resulting in an undesired carbon imprint (Farooq et al., 2021). Parallel to the immense advantages that this industry has offered, the rise of the hospitality industry as a worldwide behemoth industry has also endangered the environment (Ahmed et al., 2021). The breadth of the global hospitality industry's operational scope, value chain, and company scale raises awareness of the need to mitigate the industry's negative impact on the natural, economic, and social environment via the idea of green hotel management (Nisar et al., 2021).
