Signaling Eco-Certification: Implications For Service Coproduction And Resource Efficiency, Jie J. Zhang, Nitin Joglekar, Rohit Verma

Articles and Chapters

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to use an eco-friendly service concept framework to demonstrate the effect of credible eco-certification signaling.
