Tourism enterprise: developments, management and sustainability.

Book cover for Tourism enterprise: developments, management and sustainability.


This book examines the tourism business in terms of 'greening' the local economy, people and environment, establishing the green agenda and investigating its application to the tourism sector. This text is founded on empirical research conducted in the Lake District National Park (Cumbria) and in Scotland. Although primarily focused on the environmental performance of tourism enterprises, it provides insights into the management and operational practices of these enterprises more generally. The book has 10 chapters.
