Good Housekeeping Practices in Hotels
The study carried out and the writing of this manual are elements of a wider framework: the constant
desire on the part of the Mediterranean countries to reduce the environmental impact caused by
tourism, above all in coastal areas, and the idea of promoting sustainable tourism. The guide
effectively complements the “Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development", adopted by all of
the Mediterranean states at the 14th meeting of the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention,
held in Portoroz, Slovenia, in November 2005.
