Regarding the drivers that push tourism SMEs to adopt green practices, the research concludes that the possibility to improve their environmental performance and to increase the quality of the service are the main reasons perceived by the sampled SMEs. The main issues that hindered the widespread of green or circular economy practices are mainly economic.
