Stefanica Mirela, Mioara Borza


The present work analyses the measures adopted in hotel industry with the purpose to obtain a sustainable consumption through a comparative approach of Romanian and Italian hotels, by highlighting the similarities and the differences between them.

Consequently, we used the questionnaire as a research instrument, in order to gather the primary data, which were processed by the help of SPSS program. The results obtained emphasised the measures applied most often in the tourist units investigated for sustainable consumption. Therefore, we noticed that the measures concerning  the reduction of water consumption are most often adopted by the management systems of the tourist units analysed, both in Romania and in Italy. The measures concerning the efficient administration of waste are less applied in the Romanian hotels. As for the Italian hotels, among the measures for sustainable consumption, the least adopted are the ones referring to the reduction of pollution emissions.
