Abstract


Tourism has been indicated as alternative of economic growth without environmental degradation. However, there are evidences that tourism - considered a “clean” alternative of economic growth - can cause pollution. In this context, this article had the objective to analyze actions to fulfill environmental law in four hotel organizations. Methodology came from a multiple case study, carried through in four hotel organizations located in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. Data had been collected by non-participant observation, and by structuralized interview. The results indicated that those organizations fulfilled the law disposals applicable to them. It is concluded that the adequacy to the environmental law must be kept, to prevent the imposition of legal sanctions.
