LASTRA-BRAVO, Xavier B.  y  CASARES MORILLO, Lesly Dayana. Clean technologies and green services’ implementation in accommodation establishments at the urban area of Otavalo, Ecuador. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2020, vol.16, n.1, pp.23-34. ISSN 0717-6651.

Considering the current importance of clean technologies and green services in the tourism sector, its implementation in accommodation establishments in the urban area of Otavalo, Ecuador, was analyzed. The types of establishments included were hotel, hostel, inn, and refuge. Descriptive research was carried out, with a mixed approach, with research tools such as the questionnaire addressed to managers and administrators of the establishments, and interviews with experts. The results showed that the clean technologies and green services that have been most widely implemented are the use of LED lamps or energy-saving spotlights, construction with large windows, the purchase of low-consumption electrical appliances, leakage controls and pressure regulation of pipes, design of gardens and green areas with plant species adapted to natural conditions, location of materials in containers that are marked and differentiated by color and name, and transport and management of waste by authorized entities. Satisfaction with the performance and usefulness of these technologies and services is high among hotel managers, which reflects the importance of continuing to promote their implementation.
