Adaptive General Ecological Behaviour Scale

Short Description: The adaptive General Ecological Behavior scale (a-GEB) was designed to provide an economic assessment of a person’s propensity to engage in an ecological lifestyle. As such, it is especially useful for promoting sustainable development in science-based policy making. Its construct validity and external validity were previously established for non-adaptive versions (e.g., Kaiser, Byrka, & Hartig, 2010).

Methodological Details: 50 self-report items. Examples include “For going to work or school, I use the bike, public transport or I go by foot.”, “I purchased a solar energy plant.” and “In the winter I turn down my heating when I leave my apartment for more than four hours.”
