This project has as two main objectives: first, to empirically quantify the structural relationships between the implementation of ecoinnovative practices, that generate improvements in the quality of service, business competitiveness and management in the field of rural housing; and second, to develop new methodological approaches for assessing the effectiveness of public policies regarding the implementation and monitoring of quality plans and the quality of tourism environments in different types of destinations. In addition, this project investigates whether private investment in the implementation of ecoinnovative measures to improve service quality and the environmental sustainability of rural hotel establishments leads to product differentiation and whether this leads to improvements in productivity.
