This chapter first defines workplace pro-environmental behaviors and provides a “taxonomy” of these behaviors. It then reviews studies of individual determinants of workplace pro-environmental behaviors and supplements this evidence base with insights derived from studies conducted in other, non-organizational contexts and in other behavioral domains. Reasoned Action and Value-Belief-Norm—two dominant theoretical perspectives on pro-environmental behaviors—are compared, and integrative models of the two theories are discussed. Proposed additions to these models are also reviewed. In particular, the role of habits and unconscious influences and more distal predictors such as person characteristics are explored. The chapter ends with a discussion on the relative importance of individual determinants for different pro-environmental behaviors, interactions between individual determinants, and suggested directions for future research. It is argued that a more systematic approach to applying general theoretical insights to workplace pro-environmental behaviors is needed.

Keywords:   emotions, habits, identity, individual determinants, interactions, person characteristics, reasoned action, value-belief-norm, workplace pro-environmental behaviors
