Symbolic motives in the adoption of sustainable innovations

Social Psychology

Sustainable innovations have instrumental and environmental attributes. Evaluations of these attributes determine consumers' likelihood of adopting the innovation. However there seems to be a third type of attribute that seems to play an important role in in the adoption likelihood of such innovations: the symbolic attributes. In this ongoing research the role of symbolic attributes are studied in the lab and the field.
