The present research attempts to understand the young consumers' intention toward buying green products in a developing nation; India. The study has used the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as its theoretical framework and further attempted to extend the TPB by incorporating additional constructs (environmental concern & environmental knowledge) in it. Data was collected using self-administered questionnaire survey and analyzed with the help of structural equation modeling (SEM). The finding reported the usefulness of TPB in predicting young consumers' intention towards purchasing green products. The result also supported the applicability of including additional constructs in TPB, as it has improved the predictive utility of the proposed model (from 27.1% to 37.7%). At the end, the implications for policy makers and scope for further research have been discussed. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

We investigated Granger-causality between variants of the energy consumption sources and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the United State of America (USA). To accomplish this objective we utilized a recent approach of asymmetric Granger-causality developed by Hatemi-J for the period January 1973-October 2011. Our results indicated presence of asymmetric Granger-causality between a few variants of energy consumption sources (i.e., Coal Consumption (CC), Natural Gas Consumption (NG), Primary Energy Consumption (PE), and Total Renewable Energy Consumption (TRE)) and GDP (all measured in growth rates). Additionally, when positive shocks are analyzed we found the evidence of unidirectional Granger-causality running from GDP growth rate to growth rate of CC and from growth rate of Total Electricity End Use (EC) to GDP growth rate. Additionally, we find significant evidence of bidirectional Granger-causality between NG and GDP, PE and GDP and TRE and GDP (all measured in growth rates). However, in case of negative shocks we find that the null hypothesis that growth rates in CC and TRE do not Granger-cause GDP growth rate is rejected at 5% level of significance. These results have important implications for research analysts as well as policy makers of the USA economy. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

The present research attempts to understand the importance of altruistic and egoistic value in determining the young consumers’ intention to buy organic food. Environmental concern was considered as the altruistic value, whereas health concern as egoistic value. Using the convenience sampling method, a total of 304 usable responses was collected from young consumers, with the help of self administered questionnaire survey approach. Data analysis was done using two step structural equation modeling (SEM) approach, i.e. measurement model and structural model. Findings indicated that, both altruistic as well as egoistic value influences the intention to buy organic food among young Indian consumers. However, egoistic value was found to have more impact on the consumers’ organic food purchase intention. The present research is one of the initial attempts in the Indian context to understand the importance of values (altruistic and egoistic) organic food consumption among young consumers. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental Management | Year: 2010

Any company in any country can be a responsible leader, if it chooses to be so. South India Paper Mills (SIPM), a medium-sized family business manufacturing recycled paper integrated corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities early in its business strategy; activities such as providing free treated water for agriculture to the local farmers while finding a way of disposing of wastewater. The company voluntarily increased compensation and guaranteed employment to the children of retired employees, which ensured better living and educational standards, provided employment opportunities, and reversed the migration trend to the city. The acute power shortage led the management to generate its own power with the locally available biomass to ensure a steady supply of power and income, by supplying excess power to the State, and a regular source of income to the villagers. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd and ERP Environment.

This paper explores the effects of financial development, economic growth, coal consumption and trade openness on environmental performance using time series data over the period 1965-2008 in case of South Africa. The ARDL bounds testing approach to cointegration has been used to test the long run relationship among the variables while short run dynamics have been investigated by applying error correction method (ECM). The unit root properties of the variables are examined by applying Saikkonen and Lütkepohl (2002. Econometric Theory 18, 313-348) structural break unit root test. Our findings confirmed long run relationship among the variables. Results showed that a rise in economic growth increases energy emissions, while financial development reduces it. Coal consumption has significant contribution to deteriorate environment in South African economy. Trade openness improves environmental quality by reducing the growth of energy pollutants. Our empirical results also verified the existence of environmental Kuznets curve. This paper opens up new insights for South African economy to sustain economic growth by controlling environment from degrdation through efficient use of energy. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

This study investigates the dynamic relationship between coal consumption, economic growth, trade openness and CO2 emissions in case of India. In doing so, Narayan and Popp, Journal of Applied Statistics 2010; 37:1425-1438, structural break unit test is applied to test the order of integration of the variables. Long run relationship between the variables is tested by applying the ARDL bounds testing approach to cointegration developed by Pesaran et al. Journal of Applied Econometrics 2001; 16:289-326. The results confirm the existence of cointegration for long run between coal consumption, economic growth, trade openness and CO2 emissions. Our empirical exercise indicates the presence of environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) in long run as well as in short run. Coal consumption as well as trade openness contributes to CO2 emissions. The causality analysis reports the feedback hypothesis between economic growth and CO2 emissions and same inference is drawn between coal consumption and CO2 emissions. Moreover, trade openness Granger causes economic growth, coal consumption and CO2 emissions. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

This study examines the linkages among economic growth, energy consumption, financial development, trade openness and CO2 emissions over the period of 1975Q1-2011Q4 in case of Indonesia. The stationary analysis is performed by using Zivot-Andrews unit root test and the ARDL bounds testing approach for a long run relationship between the series in the presence of structural breaks. The causality between the concerned variables is examined by the VECM Granger causality technique and robustness of causal analysis is tested by innovative accounting approach (IAA). Our results confirm that the variables are cointegrated; it means that the long run relationship exists in the presence of structural breaks. The empirical findings indicate that economic growth and energy consumption increase CO2 emissions, while financial development and trade openness compact it. The VECM causality analysis has shown the feedback hypothesis between energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Economic growth and CO2 emissions are also interrelated i.e. bidirectional causality. Financial development Granger causes CO2 emissions. The study opens up new policy insights to control the environment from degradation by using energy efficient technologies. Financial development and trade openness can also play their role in improving the environmental quality. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper investigates the unit root properties of electricity consumption per capita of 67 developed and developing countries for the period 1971-2010. To examine the stationary properties of electricity consumption per capita, we have adopted Lee and Strazicich (2003, 2004) test of unit root that allows us to test for at most two endogenous breaks and uses the Lagrange Multiplier (LM) test statistics. Results show that 65 country series reject the unit root null hypothesis except for 2 country series. Thus, our empirical findings provide significant evidence that electricity consumption per capita is stationary in almost all countries considered. The stationarity of electricity consumption per capita indicates that it should be possible for the series to forecast future movements in the energy consumption based on the past behaviors of the series. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
