Who are the good citizens for the environment? An examination of the predictive validity of personality traits

Terrier, Lohyd (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland) ; Kim, Sowon (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland) ; Fernandez, Sébastien (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

Our study examines the antecedents of organization citizenship behavior for the environment (OCBE). In particular, we examined the relation between the five factor model personality traits and the tri-dimensional model of OCBE (eco-initiatives, eco-civic engagement and eco-helping). In a sample of undergraduates in Switzerland, openness to experience predicted eco-helping, conscientiousness predicted eco-initiatives and, extraversion predicted eco-civic engagement. Contrary to our expectations, agreeableness is not associated with OCBE dimensions.
