Abstract

The paper examines the impact of determinants on purchasing of eco-labelled products and waste separation for recycling in Cyprus and Sweden. The analysis uses logistic regression and Eurobarometer survey data. Results show that policy measures could be targeted to dealing with situational factors (e.g., availability of recycling services) (more so in Cyprus than in Sweden); improving access to trusted information sources and better targeting information (especially on environmental impacts of specific behaviours) to different population groups, e.g., by income and gender (in both Cyprus and Sweden); and improving labelling for ecological products (more so in Cyprus than in Sweden).
