Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Sustainability (CS) play a more and more crucial role in the development of hotel business. A study of the French hotel company Accor shows, that sustainability is a determining factor of the booking decision of hotel guests. Overall 68 per cent of the questioned people rather or fully agreed to the question, if they would accept the idea that the hotel might be a little less well localized if the hotel implements policies or services in favour of sustainable development. Regarding the question if they would accept the idea that the room rate might be a little higher if the hotel implements sustainability services, an overall share of 66 per cent rather or fully agreed (Accor 2011). A study of a German research department shows, that more than 40 per cent of the people questioned, wished their holidays to be ecological immaculate. And for more than 46 per cent of the questioned people, their holidays should be socially acceptable as well (Forschungsemeinschaft Urlaub und Reisene. V. 2013). The results of these studies finally show, that guests and even society becoming more eco-minded and more aware of the social responsibility of hotels and that the CSR performance of hotels has a positive impact on the satisfaction of the guests.
