Antecedents of Proenvironmental Behaviors: An Examination of Cultural Values, Self-Efficacy, and Environmental Attitudes

model-building approach that tests the measurement model before examining the
hypothesized structural linkages (Anderson and Gerbing 1988). A measurement model
that included latent constructs and indicators was first analyzed. As the next step, the
proposed model with hypothesized relationships was tested and refined through a series
of tests in an attempt to better explain the data. Since the cultural value, personality, and
attitude constructs might have differential impacts on different types of proenvironmental
behaviors, four separate models with green-buying (Model A), energy-saving (Model B),
recycling (Model C), and political behaviors (Model D) were tested. A final, modified
model for each type of behaviors is presented as a result.
Testing the Measurement Model
A measurement model for each of the four types of proenvironmental behaviors
was separately tested in the first step. The means, standard deviations and scale
reliabilities of each latent construct in the model are reported in Table 1. All the items or
indicators significantly loaded on the corresponding factors (p < .01). Table 2 reports the
factor loadings for each latent variable. The goodness-of-fit indices indicated a good fit of
the measurement models with the data as presented in Table 3.
Analyzing Structural Relationships
The first step in testing the fit of the model was to estimate the paths in the
proposed model in Figure 1. The same relationships among the constructs were tested
separately in four models with different types of behaviors. Results show similarities and
differences among the models. Of the six hypothesized relationships, two were
statistically significant in the expected direction (p < .05) in all of the four models,
