The Link Between Self-Construal, Environmental Concern and Response to Green Ad Claims – a Cross Cultural Comparison

The current research aims at comparing three dominant cultures associated with different types of self-construal: Indian, Chinese, and American culture. Two studies suggest that ad-claims congruent with consumers’ self-construal improve attitudes and purchase intention towards the advertised environmental products. Cultures appear to alter the way environmental advertising interacts with self-construal.
