Abstract [en]

The predictive power of value orientations, awareness of consequences, environmental concern, locus of control, moral judgment competence and sense of coherence on eight types of pro-environmental behaviors and behavioral intentions (i.e. residential energy conservation, food consumption, transportation, and recycling) were examined based on a survey completed by 463 residents in two Swedish cities. Multiple regression analyses confirmed values, awareness of consequences and environmental concern as determinants of environmental friendly behaviors and behavioral intentions, as well as sense of coherence was a determinant of pro-environmental behaviors. Locus of control and moral judgment competence showed no predictive power on neither pro-environmental behaviors or on behavioral intentions, and sense of coherence did not predict behavioral intentions. The need of more environmentally specific measures of the predictors in relation to specific behaviors was discussed.
