Proud to Limit the Damage: Negatively Framed Eco-Ratings Motivate Green Intentions Through Anticipated Pride

Eco-ratings quantify the environmental (un)sustainability of products in an assortment using a predefined ordinal-level score range. In three experiments, we find that eco-ratings positively affect anticipated pride, which in turn has a positive effect on purchase intention; the effect of eco-ratings on pride is stronger when eco-ratings are negatively framed.
