Abstract

The research is aimed at finding out the effect of environmental personality and locus of control on employees’ pro-environmental behavior. The research method used in this research was ex post facto with 2 x 2 factorial design. The object of this research were 32 employees of Universitas Satya Negara Indonesia (USNI) Jakarta, picked using random sampling technique. There were three variables in this research; pro-environmental behavior, environmental personality, and locus of control. The data were analyzed using two-way ANOVA and Tuckey test. The research results showed that 1) there were significant differences on the pro-environmental behavior of employees with accurate environmental personality and those with less accurate environmental personality; 2) there were significant differences on the pro-environmental behavior of employees with internal locus of control and those with external locus of control; 3) for employees with internal locus of control, their pro-environmental behavior was more positive if they have accurate environmental personality; 4) for employees with external locus of control, their pro-environmental behavior was more positive if they have less accurate environmental personality; 5) there is an influence of the interaction between environmental personality and locus of control on pro-environmental behavior. Therefore, it can be stated that pro-environmental behavior of employees is not only influenced by their environmental personality, but also by their locus of control. In other words, to improve employees’ pro-environmental behavior, both environmental personality and locus of control need to be considered.
