Abstract / Description

Although the vast majority of businesses do recycle, its success depends upon individual compliance. While ‘nudging’ individuals to recycle through the use of well-designed facilities can help, the general consensus is that it is only when businesses promote an entire ‘culture’ of pro-environmental behaviour that efforts to encourage recycling really start to pay off. This is because even when individuals are keen to recycle, they don’t always do so – numerous studies have shown that even for those individuals who display high levels of recycling behaviour at home, this does not translate to the workplace, where levels of recycling behaviour are generally lower.
