當碳標籤有碳排放量節省信號的時候,實驗者會告知參與者,產品的碳排放量是多(750g)或少(400g)。在碳標籤沒有碳排放量節省信號的時候,實驗者不會去解釋標籤顏色所代表的碳排放量程度,且碳標籤都是以綠色呈現。本實驗以便利抽樣找尋到240位民眾,都是隨機分派實驗情境,每一位參與者只會看到該情境產品中碳標籤與價格的圖片。最後實驗發現,當有碳排放節省信號的時候,碳排放量低-價格高的瓶裝綠茶之購買意願高於碳排放高-價格低的瓶裝綠茶;當沒有碳排放節省信號的時候,兩者的購買意願不會有所差異。此外,利用Dunlap and van Liere's (1978)的NEP (New Environmental Paradigm)量表來衡量參與者的環境意識,發現環境意識並未能對於以上的假說有所影響。依實驗結果建議,除非能給予清楚的節約信號,否則碳標籤不會鼓勵民眾去選擇低碳產品。
Since the Industrial Revolution, human beings have emitted huge amounts of greenhouse gases for economic growth, and greenhouse gases may influence climate. To slow down climate change, everyone has to take action. Recently, the carbon footprint (CF) labeling on products offers consumers an opportunity to do so in daily shopping. However, so far a CF label reveals only the amount of CO2 emitted during the product's life cycle, but not the product's relative CO2 emission level (i.e., whether the product emitted more or less CO2 than similar products). This study thus hypothesized that the mere presentation of a CF label would not affect consumers' buying intent. To test this and other related hypotheses, this study ran an experiment with 3 independent variables. The variables are amount of CO2 emitted (400gm or 750gm), CO2-saving signal (given or not given) and price (20 NTD or 30 NTD) of the product, which was a tetra-packed tea. In the CO2-saving signal given condition, the experimenter told the participants either that a green CF label denoted low CO2 emissions (in the 400gm condition) or that a green CF label denoted high CO2 emissions (in the 750gm condition). The label shown, in fact, was always green. In the CO2-saving signal not given condition, the experimenter did not explain the meaning of the label color.A convenient sample of 240 adults joined the experiment. They were randomly assigned to the experiment conditions. Each participant saw a picture of a tetra-packed tea with a CF label and listed price. Results showed that when CO2-saving signal was given, the low-CO2-high-price tea could induce higher buying intent than the high-CO2-low-price tea. When CO2-saving signal was not given, the two conditions did not differ in buying intent. Furthermore, participants' environmental attitude—as measured a scale adapted from Dunlap and van Liere's (1978) New Environmental Paradigm Scale—did not qualify the above results. These findings suggest that CF label can neither help nor encourage people to choose low-CO2 products, unless it is complemented with a clear CO2-saving signal.
