Innovation is considered a source of competitive advantage and economic growth, and worthy of study under the conditions of increased global competition, technological change, fast-changing market situations and continuous customer/client demand for quality services (Damanpour & Wischnevsky, 2006; Tajeddini & Trueman, 2014). Innovation has a strong link to entrepreneurism since firms need to have an innovative culture to engage in innovative behavior (Hult et al., 2004; Menor & Roth, 2007). The firm's innovative culture – in other words, its innovativeness – reflects whether the organization is in favor of developing and/or adopting innovations or alternatively resists this process (Santos-Vijande et al., 2013). The “greening of the organization” and “green innovation” can be thought of as two separate strategies geared toward the same goal (B. Gabler et al., 2015, Cronin et al., 2011).
