Hospitality industry plays a significant role in the sustainable development of a country. As accommodation is the necessary pre-condition for any tourism activity and is the face of further booming expansion, its impact on society is becoming increasingly visible.

Moreover todays hotel guests have become more conscious of environmental problems and have started considering the environment in their accommodation choice. The development of eco-labels is thus helping tourists with their choices.

Besides this, it was argued that guests are the most powerful external factor that has the ability to influence and demand practices, since government control and legislation are mostly absent in the industry.
