Over the last two decades, the hotel industry is becoming too large for the business sector and the major producer of the waste. Waste needs to be controlled to combat climate change for sustainable development. For this, management needs complete monitoring in the industry for control and prevent wastage. Waste management is the prevention, creation, awareness, recycling, tackling, handling issues, problem-solving and residual disposition of solid waste. Similarly, technology and machines need to be established in such a way that energy consumption can reduce to a greater extent in the hotel industry with a supportive management team. The aim of writing this paper is to make everyone aware of the industry and save the environment by promoting eco-friendly practices. This research paper focused primarily on the conservation of energy and reducing wastage. It provides the aim and suggestions to some extent on the current situation worldwide in hospitality and creating a platform for discussing the environment compatible practices and offers the best alternatives. For said purpose, we have collected some secondary data from different internet sources and studied waste management procedures and applied technology for energy conservation of a few Hyderabad hotels. It is observed that hotels get many opportunities for reducing and recycling waste and utilising energy for establishing a recycling programme and saving cost without hampering the operation or the comfort of the guest. While creating many opportunities in tourism, the national economy hospitality sector poses a significant aspect that provides a threat to the environment without implementing the measures and prevention methods for saving our earth. The only broad level of discipline including architects, wise planning, service, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, environment and energy specialists, marketing specialists require forming proper planning and design for offering a convincing environment and creating the best opportunities for sustainable business. Training of the hotel management staff can lead to better and effective results of understanding, energy saving, reducing wastage and increasing profitability.
