Research model of the environmental management in hotel firms

Author: Yaiza Armas Cruz, Esperanza Gil Soto

The current work aims to develop a instrument to measure the impact of firms' environmental protection activities on their economic performance. This tool is specifically designed for the tourism sector, which is rarely analysed from this perspective despite its considerable relevance due to its strong interaction with the environment. The work empirically tests the model on a sample of hotels in Canary Islands (Spain). It uses structural equation modelling to analyse the information. The findings show that the proposed model fits the underlying reality well, and its constituent components satisfy validity and reliability criteria. Thus, they make an important contribution to knowledge about the determinants and implications of sustainability in tourism-sector firms.
