The adoption of pro-environmental behaviour at the individual level is essential to achieve the transition to a sustainable society. In this paper we examine the relationship between pro-environmental behaviour and subjective well-being, checking whether the positive associations found by previous research extend to different types of behaviour and conceptions of well-being. Using regression analysis with data from a sample of students from the University of Granada, we found that the relationship between pro-environmental behaviour and well-being differs according to the type of behaviour and the dimension of well-being considered. In general, a more frequent participation in pro-environmental behaviour is only positively related to the eudaimonic dimension of well-being (subjective vitality). When we distinguish behaviours according to their most representative characteristics, we find that behaviours that imply savings are positively associated with the emotions experienced, while behaviours that imply a cost and those easily observed are positively related to subjective vitality. We found no significant associations between any type of pro-environmental behavior and life satisfaction.
