This article reports the results of attempting to reconcile the findings of clusters derived from Chinese hotel managers' scores on the New Environmental Paradigm with understandings of managerial responsibility and reported hotel environmental practices. Though initial results seemed consistent, closer examination revealed problems relating to possible response sets to the questionnaire items. Given a society where “face” is considered important, the question is raised in the article as to whether this may operate as a complicating factor when undertaking such research. It should be noted, however, that special circumstances may be operating given the proximity of the hotels to polluted lakes.
