ABSTRACT
The article discusses the initiatives of several luxury hotels to have environmental efficient operations in Australia. According to the International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM), a global exhibition created to monitor and to promote the top end of the travel market, the fast phase of the growth in the luxury sector has added to the country's major concern on environmental management. Thus, the acceleration in luxury and consumption has been incorporated with the increase in the awareness of global warming as well as the sustainability of the environment. However, major luxury hotels in the country have already been developing corporate initiatives in order to support the cultural and environmental management programs of the country.
