Green hotel practices are one of the environmentally friendly initiatives that aim to reduce the negative impact on the environment by saving energy (for example, by installing energy-efficient appliances and renewable energy programs), reducing water consumption (for example, by installing water-efficient devices and equipment and implementing a linen and towel reuse program), and managing and reducing waste (e.g., by implementing recycling programs and using durable items rather than disposable ones) (Abdou et al., 2020). In the Philippines, the House of Representatives approved House Bill 9061 on second reading. The bill, which was primarily written by the former president and current speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, aims to encourage all business organizations—domestic and foreign—established and operating under Philippine laws to uphold corporate social responsibility in the conduct of their operations in the nation. (House of Representatives Press Releases, 2022). Hence, the purpose of this research is to know the different green practices of the different hotels in Albay in relation to social responsibility. The study uses a mixed method research design to identify the profile, green practices and challenges encountered by the hotels, while Pearson of Correlation was also used in order to analyze whether there is a significant relationship between the hotel profile and its practices. The analyzed data revealed that The different green practices in terms of: community involvement and development, human resource management, consumer issues protection, fair operating practices, an organizational governance got the same adjectival interpretation of well-practiced. On the other hand, only the variable environmental health and pollution prevention got the adjectival interpretation of practiced. Furthermore, Regarding the number of rooms and the hotel's green practices, the null hypothesis is accepted; therefore, there is no significant relationship. For the number of employees, only the variable environmental health and pollution prevention got a computed t of 2.06 with tabulated t at 5%, which indicates that the null hypothesis is rejected and there is a significant relationship. Lastly, for the years of operation, two of the variables got a rejected null hypothesis and have a significant relationship between the profile and the green practices: human resource management and environmental health and pollution prevention
