Antecedents of Proenvironmental Behaviors: An Examination of Cultural Values, Self-Efficacy, and Environmental Attitudes
Unformatted Document Text:  ICA-2-11744 Antecedents of Proenvironmental Behaviors 16 χ 2 difference = 1.05, d.f. = 1, p > .05 for Model D; (3) χ 2 difference = 2.22, d.f. = 1, p > .05 for Model A; χ 2 difference = 1.83, d.f. = 1, p > .05 for Model D. The two non-significant relationships from collectivism to (1) environmental attitudes and (2) behaviors in Model B with energy-saving behaviors were investigated and did not generate significant change in chi- square: (1) χ 2 difference = .62, d.f. = 1, p > .05; (2) χ 2 difference = 1.30, d.f. = 1, p > .05. In the model of recycling behaviors (Model C), the relationships (1) from collectivism to environmental attitudes, (2) from collectivism to behaviors, and (3) from attitudes to behaviors were examined and they did not produce significant chi-square changes: (1) χ 2 difference = .64, d.f. = 1, p > .05; (2) χ 2 difference = 3.65, d.f. = 1, p > .05 (3) χ 2 difference = .96, d.f. = 1, p > .05. Thus, these paths, which did not significantly contribute to improvement of the model fit, were removed from each model. Parameter estimates for the revised model are presented in Table 4. The modified models account for the data well (See Table 4) and these final models are more parsimonious without any non-significant causal linkages than the original, proposed model. See the final models in Figures 2 through 5. Discussion The present study simultaneously examined the interrelationships among collectivism, PCE, environmental attitudes, and proenvironmental behaviors. The results of this study provide new information on the antecedents of proenvironmental behaviors. Collectivism, PCE, and environmental attitudes were found to be the important constructs influencing environmentally conscious behaviors. A structural model of these relationships shows the direct and indirect effects of these variables.

Discussion
The present study simultaneously examined the interrelationships among
collectivism, PCE, environmental attitudes, and proenvironmental behaviors. The results
of this study provide new information on the antecedents of proenvironmental behaviors.
Collectivism, PCE, and environmental attitudes were found to be the important constructs
influencing environmentally conscious behaviors. A structural model of these
relationships shows the direct and indirect effects of these variables.
