pp. 64. In 2013, the University of Minnesota Tourism Center partnered with Explore Minnesota Tourism
(EMT), the state‘s tourism promotion office, to conduct an online survey on sustainable practices.
Part of an ongoing effort since 2007, the 2013 survey asked about perceived benefits and difficulties
to adopt sustainable practices and included questions about the state of implementing sustainable
practices in six areas: energy efficiency, waste minimization, environmental purchasing, air quality,
water conservation, and landscaping/wildlife. Respondents also indicated: their gender, their
industry sector, their Minnesota tourism region, number of years working in the industry and for
their current employer, the likelihood of participating in green travel certification programs, and
preferred ways of receiving information on sustainable tourism.
