Linking political attitude and pro-environmental behaviors in China


  • Ziming Liu
  • Shuyi Feng


Individual pro-environmental behaviours can have large environmental impacts. In this note, we investigate how political attitude relates to pro-environmental behaviours, using data from the Chinese General Social Survey 2013. Compared to individuals who embrace more government interventions, those who hold the opposite political attitude are less likely to engage in pro-environmental behaviours. The results are robust across different specifications. We contribute to the literature by providing the first micro-level evidence from China. Similar to other countries, in China, political attitude is an important driver of pro-environmental behaviours.
