The paper aims to analyse and discuss the areas of corporate environmental responsibility (CER) and policy transfer in the tourism arena. The purpose of this paper is to provide theoretical underpinnings exploring the interpretation and implementation of CER policies and practices within the Bali hotel industry. This paper will explore the processes, factors and staff attitudes and behaviours in the translation, diffusion and adoption of head office policy to the local office environment in Bali, Indonesia. This paper introduces self-determination theory (SDT) focusing on the consideration of the source of employee motivation from a multidimensional perspective. The paper will also highlight key issues, including the roles of policy transfer analysis; policy gap between transfer and implementation and social psychology theories that help support CER policy adoption. Lastly, the paper will introduce research questions on policy transfer, adoption, implementation and diffusion and offer propositions based on an extensive review of the literature.
