This paper aims at explaining the relationship between hotelsâ€™ environmental performance, achieved through the implementation of good managerial eco-practices, and the social responsibility. In this study, we have assessed the managerial eco-practices through the following dimensions: eco-friendly purchases and suppliers, energetic efficiency monitoring, waste management, recycling, water management and staff ecological formation. The data collected through a survey on a sample of hotels from the Veneto Region of Italy have been analysed using the Partial Least Squares method performed using the SmartPLS 3.0 software. Research results confirm that good eco-practices of hotel managers lead to environmental performance. Moreover, the results also suggests that hotel managers are involved in programs and projects with a role in enhancing environmental issues, thus demonstrating social responsibility.
