Project Description

To what extent do people believe that performing one environmentally friendly action makes up for (or compensates for) a less environmentally friendly action? This project would seek to understand more about the psychological underpinnings and behavioural impacts of people’s tendencies to endorse and use these so-called Compensatory Green Beliefs (CGBs).
