Greening in the hospitality sector are becoming more popular on a global scale. Going green have drawn the attention of both individuals and companies in recent times. Businesses, including hotels, are being urged to take accountability for their part in the environment's decline. This study sought to ascertain the degree to which hotels in the Sunyani Municipality had adopted sustainable initiatives. Data from forty (40) hotel managers in the Sunyani Municipality were gathered quantitatively using a simple random sampling and stratified procedure. In these surveyed hotels, the adoption of green practices is not governed by any policies, according to the findings. The element influencing the hotels to adopt and implement green initiatives was customer demand. Of all the green practises, managing liquid waste was the most often used. According to the study's findings, most hotels in the municipality contribute less to reducing the harmful effects on the environment. The implications are that there is the need for green management training which would help strengthen hotel employees’ sustainability practices.
