Abstract:

This study explores the general character of environmental management in small-sized tourism accommodations (STAs) in Turkey. Its objective is to collect and evaluate information about such accommodations and bring the findings to the attention of interested parties such as researchers, local, national and international policy and decision makers, environmentalists and investors regarding the environmental management of small-sized enterprises. The study data were collected from 104 STA facilities in Turkey. It was found that there is no concern for sustainable management and environmental protection in daily practices of such facilities. The study concludes that further studies are needed to find solutions to the existing problems of poor management and lack of interest in the environment.
