Abstract

•We hypothesize that generalized trust can narrow the gap between environmental concern and pro-environmental behavior.•We obtained multilevel evidence supporting this hypothesis with two international survey datasets (WVS and ISSP).•The concern-behavior association was stronger among individuals and countries with higher levels of generalized trust.•These findings elucidate the gap and suggest how environmental campaigns can be improved.•They also signify the need to explore cross-national variations in phenomena pertaining to environmental concern and behavior.
