Environmental Management Practices in Hospitality Establishments in Slow Cities: Akyaka Example
Yavaş Şehirlerdeki Konaklama İşletmelerinde Çevre Yönetimi Uygulamaları: Akyaka Örneği

Feriyal Farhadi Andarabi [1] , Azize Tunç Hassan [2]


It is easy to see that tendency to environmentally-conscious practices is gradually increasing all around the world. Tourism sector inherently involves activities that develop and grow in conjunction with natural environment.  As the criteria for Slow Cities are based on the principles of sustainability, they would provide convenience to carry out sustainable tourism activities in these cities. This study is aimed at investigating the current status of accommodation establishments in Cittaslow Akyaka in Ula county of Muğla province within the scope of environmental management practices.  For this purpose, face-to-face interviews have been made with executives of 6 accommodation establishments in Akyaka. As a result of the research, it is determined that the participants don’t have sufficient knowledge regarding environmental management practices and their benefits. Another finding of the research is that the accommodation establishments in Akyaka don’t differ from each other with regard to their environmentally sensitive practices in terms of their types. Training programs organized for the executives of accommodation establishments within the scope of environmental management and practices may support Akyaka to pursue the path of being sensitive to environment.

Günümüzde tüm dünyada çevreye duyarlı uygulamalara olan eğilimin giderek arttığı görülebilir. Turizm sektörü yapısı gereği, doğal çevre ile gelişen ve büyüyen faaliyetleri kapsamaktadır. Yavaş şehirler sahip oldukları doğal güzellikleri, özgün tarihleri ve yerel kültürleriyle, alternatif turizm pazarında proaktif şekilde değerlendirilebilir. Yavaş Şehir kriterlerinin sürdürülebilirlik ilkelerine dayanarak hazırlanmış olması, bu şehirlerde sürdürülebilir turizm faaliyetlerinin gerçekleşmesine kolaylık sağlayabilir.  Bu çalışmada, Muğla ilinin Ula ilçesine bağlıolan Yavaş Şehir Akyaka’da bulunan konaklama işletmelerinin çevre yönetimi uygulamaları kapsamında mevcut durumlarının araştırılması amaçlanmıştır. Amacın gerçekleşmesi için, Akyaka’daki faaliyet gösteren konaklama işletmelerinin 6’sında yöneticilik konumunda çalışanlarla yüz yüze görüşmeler yapılmıştır. Araştırma sonucunda; katılımcıların çevre yönetiminin uygulamaları ve sağladığı faydaları hakkında, bilgilerinin yetersiz olduğu tespit edilmiştir. Akyaka’da konaklama işletmelerinin türlerine göre çevreye duyarlı uygulamalarında farklılık göstermediği de araştırmanın diğer bir sonucu olarak ortaya çıkmıştır. Çevre yönetimi ve uygulamaları kapsamında konaklama işletme yöneticilerine yönelik düzenlenmiş olacak eğitim programları, Akyaka’ya çevreye duyarlı olma yolunda ilerlenmesine destek verebilir.
