This thesis aims to understand how an individual’s attitudes and behaviours associated with health and well-being, the environment, carbon emissions and climate change affect their personal carbon trading system (PCTS) usage intentions.

Data was collected via a survey that was hand delivered to every house on Norfolk Island. Depending on the gender and the carbon footprint of the respondent the constructs that were found to be significant predictors of the dependent variable 'Usage Intentions Towards a PCTS' were ‘Optimism’, 'Self Health Evaluation', 'Health Consciousness', 'Environmental Action' and 'Environmental Consciousness'.
