Abstract:

As public concern about environmental issues increases, it becomes more important to understand antecedents of proenvironmental behaviors. A study was undertaken to investigate the effects of cultural values (collectivism), perceived consumer effectiveness (PCE), environmental attitudes on four types of proenvironmental behaviors: green-buying, energy-saving, recycling, and political behaviors. Structural equation modeling systematically tested and refined models representing interrelationships among the relevant variables. The results suggest that collectivistic value orientations have a direct effect on beliefs about self-efficacy in solving problems (PCE), which in turn influence environmental attitudes. However, the effects of PCE and attitudes on behaviors appeared to vary with the type of proenvironmental behaviors. That is, PCE exerts a direct effect on energy-saving and recycling behaviors and environmental attitudes have a direct effect on all behavioral measures except for recycling behaviors. Overall, the results indicate the importance of the relevant variables in predicting consumer proenvironmental behaviors. Although the value orientation was not found to have a direct effect on behaviors, it exerted indirect influences through PCE that subsequently influences environmental attitudes and behaviors. Implications for public policy and marketing communication efforts and directions for future research are provided.
