Abstract: This paper investigated the environmental cost attributable to electricity consumption in hotel industry and accommodation operations. Abatement cost approach plus a prorated model were used in the environmental costing. The study surveyed 20 hotels on the energy consumption in 1994?1996 and conducted 3 case studies on the in?room electrical requirements. Results indicate that green costs, per occupied room basis, attributable to electricity consumption in hotel range from HK$4.52 to HK$9.05. For room operations only, the green cost relating to the electricity consumption per occupied room was HK$3.31 to HK$3.62. Implications for green reporting at property level and industry level are discussed, and recommendations are made for future research.
