Exploring Obstacles of Employing Environmental Practices: The Case of Egyptian Green Hotels
This study attempts to explore the obstacles of employing environmental practices in green hotels as perceived by Egyptian maintenance engineers. In pursuing the study objectives, a survey instrument was developed and administered to 18 maintenance engineers at Egyptian green hotels so as to generate data for investigating the research objectives. The study depicted several obstacles related to implementing the environmental and financial burden, human resources knowledge and skills, and guests' attitude. Egyptian hotel managers can benefit from a deeper understanding of the issues related to those obstacles. This study is considered a primary stride in understanding the situation of Egyptian green hotels. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
