Chapter 5: Disentangling voluntary pro-environmental behaviour of employees (VPBE) – fostering research through an integrated theoretical model
Restricted access

The exploration of discretionary pro-environmental behaviour in companies is at the core of environmental sustainability. This chapter gives an overview of existing concepts, models, and research streams relevant for explaining voluntary pro-environmental behaviour of employees (VPBE). It illustrates their theoretical grounding, explains connections between different models and determinants, and presents the current status of research on different sources of VPBE. Based on this exploration, as well as a discussion of the specific characteristics of VPBE, we develop a comprehensive model of VPBE that integrates existing concepts, and deduce behavioural interventions in the form of measures and instruments to enhance VPBE.
