 The Disunity of Knowing and Doing of Urban Residents'

Low-Carbon Commuting Behavior  

Wang Feng and Liu Na





Abstract: With the urban transportation carbon emission being increasingly severe in China, studying the urban residents' commuting behavior is beneficial to understand the rule of urban transportation carbon emissions, and to reduce urban transportation carbon emissions with a definite goal. Based on the stratified random sampling survey data of households in six districts of Xi'an City, the effects and mechanism of environmental knowledge and awareness on low-carbon commuting of citizens were explained by using binary Logit regression method and integrating demographic factors and situational factors into moderating variables. The main conclusions of this study are as follows: Environmental knowledge is negatively correlated with low-carbon commuting, and this relation is regulated by housing area and occupational-residential distance, which reveals the objective existence of the phenomenon of the disunity of knowing and doing. Environmental awareness has no direct and significant impact on low-carbon commuting, and private car ownership and longer occupational-residential distance are the main reasons that hinder the positive guidance of environmental awareness. Moreover, environmental awareness is positively correlated with low-carbon commuting among women. Based on this, this paper proposes to introduce differentiated policies for different groups to promote low-carbon commuting, and to promote the unification of knowledge intention and action in the field of low-carbon commuting by building a more convenient public transportation system.
