Circular Time Is Greener: the Impact of Temporal Perspective on Pro-Environmental Behavior

We demonstrate that individuals with a cyclical temporal perspective are more likely to behave pro-environmentally than those with a linear temporal perspective. This effect is serially mediated by inclusion of the environment in the self and environmental beliefs. Advertising appeals that match a consumer’s temporal perspective influence pro-environmental behavior.
