Abstract

The problem of the environmental technologies introduction in all spheres of the modern economy, including the service sector, are of particular relevance due to the increase of environmental problems worldwide. The purpose of this research is the identification and synthesis of scientific and theoretical data on the existing studies and implementation of environmental technologies in the service sector, as well as the development of measures for their minimization or elimination on the example of establishments providing hospitality and tourist services. For the issue analysis we have used empirical theoretical methods, methods for qualitative and quantitative analysis, methods of data aggregation, factor and structural-functional analysis, classification and structuring of informational, reference and statistical data, mapping method. As a result of the study we summarized scientific and theoretical basis to determine the nature of «environmental technology» concept. As a result, we clarified the details of this concept. The authors summarized the advanced international and Russian practice of environmental technologies implementation in the field of tourism and hospitality services sphere. They justified the directions of environmental technologies implementation activities in the service sector. We suggested measures to reduce heat energy losses, to save energy consumption, improve the efficiency of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The article will be useful for both service businesses that are interested in the environmental technologies introduction, as well as regional government bodies specialized in environmental and conservation initiatives.
