The brief abstract of the paper is given as follows.
“The hotel sector of Sri Lanka has been acknowledged as a prominent revenue generating source to the nation. But, unfortunately, the sector has already degraded and depleted the country’s ecological resources to a greater extent. Thus, the study aimed to investigate the significant impact of green transformational leadership on green innovations in the hotel sector with special reference to the Central Province of Sri Lanka. Based on structural modeling equation, it was discovered that green transformational leadership has a significant impact on the green product innovations and green process innovations. Moreover, it was revealed that the impact of green transformational leadership on the green process innovations was higher than green product innovations in the hotel sector of Sri Lanka.”
