Using the dynamic-capabilities-view of the company, this article proposes and tests a model in which the dimensions of learning orientation and innovativeness influence proactive environmental management capability. Additionally, it analyzes the mediating effect of innovativeness in the relationship between the dimensions of learning orientation and proactive environmental management capability. To reach these aims, an empirical study was conducted on 250 hotels. The results contribute to fill a gap in the literature, since it is an analysis on how organizational competencies significantly explain the development of a proactive environmental management capability. Specifically, these are related to values associated with the consideration of learning as a critical resource, the implementation of structures that facilitate the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge, the existence of an open-minded orientation and the predisposition of the company to develop organizational innovations.
