- Sustainable Lifestyles and Education
The Behavioural Science Working Group from the Sustainable Lifestyles and Education Programme is leading research in the use of behavioral insights to create sustainble workplaces. The project will go through three phases:
Phase 1: EXPLORE
Collect best practices and good case studies from organisations that are already applying BI to promote sustainable behaviours within the workplace.
Phase 2: TEST
Run experiments to test specific policies (e.g. efficiency of carbon tax to reduce carbon emissions from travel).
Phase 3: SPREAD LESSONS LEARNT AND ENGAGE
Create a practical tool kit for organisations to implement BI techniques and disseminate success stories. This can be done through an online user-friendly platform, in which we can share best practices and start building a BI community, similar to what we can see today at government levels.
Currently in Phase 1 the working group has put together this survey in order to collect examples of best practices and experiences in promoting environmentally sustainable behaviour within organisations.
Behavioural science draws on insights from psychology and economics to understand the drivers of human behaviour and to design interventions to shape how people act. In this survey we are interested in practices aimed at achieving behaviour change, regardless of whether they have been informed by behavioural science insights or not.
The survey should be ideally filled in by the most knowledgeable person on greening practices within your organisation.
Responses to this survey will feed into reporting on the topic as well as informing future activities of the Behavioural Science Working Group and projects around the application of behavioural insights to promote sustainability goals to be hosted on One Planet Network platform.
This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Thank you very much for your participation!
The survey is open until March 21.
