For sustainable tourism, it is not sufficient only with the eco-friendly behaviors of tourists. The eco-friendly behaviors of employees in the tourism and hospitality sector are also crucial for sustainable tourism. In this context, this book chapter tries to determine hotel employees' eco-friendly behaviors during COVID-19. To achieve the aim of the chapter, Istanbul was chosen as one of the most prominent destinations in the world, and the data were collected from hotel employees in Istanbul. Moreover, in this study, different tests were used to determine whether the eco-friendly behaviors of employees differ according to demographic characteristics. Since the data were not normally distributed, non-parametric tests were used to test differences according to employees' demographics. As a result, it has been determined that the eco-friendly behavior of the hotel employees is exceptionally high; however, it does not differ according to their demographic characteristics.
