    We carried out a science–practitioner research case study to encourage pro-environmental behaviour in the workplace, using multiple methods based on psychological theory to implement and evaluate interventions, such as improving signage for the recycling scheme. The results suggest that providing clearer information, making behaviour easier and using feedback and social norms can have a beneficial effect on the development of recycling and energy saving behaviours in the workplace.
