Abstract

l''objectif de cet article est d'étudier l'influence du nombre d'attributs environnementaux d'un produit de consommation sur le poids associé à ces attributs. Les résultats de deux expérimentations montrent que les consommateurs tendent à systématiquement sous-évaluer les attributs environnementaux (certifiés ou non) lorsqu'ils sont présentés ensemble, par rapport à une éva- luation des mêmes attributs présentés séparément. Cet effet non rationnel, appelé effet d'inclusion, est plus fort pour les individus davantage préoccupés par l'environnement et impli- qués envers les écolabels. Les conclusions de cette étude remettent en question l'intérêt de cu- muler de tels attributs pour les consommateurs de produits pro-environnementaux
