Abstract/Summary In this paper, I present a test of a conceptual model that aims to explain the role of emotions, values, beliefs and issue ownership as drivers of workplace proenvironmental behavior. This model is tested in a field based survey of 324 employees. Findings provide empirical support for the proposed model, but also suggest a more important role for emotion than was hypothesized. Results challenge existing findings by suggesting direct effects between emotions and behavior. Indeed, positive emotional reactions are shown in this study to enhance workplace proenvironmental behavior, while negative emotional reactions impeded it. This finding contrasts with previous research that suggests both positive and negative emotional reactions enhance proenvironmental behavior. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.
