Abstract: 

Environmental matters are becoming a question of great importance and the increased attention to such matters has helped to make businesses, politicians and society in general consider the environment a matter of priority concern. Environmental concern, taken to mean an attitude favourable to the environment, has become widespread in different environmental aspects, such as energy saving, water consumption reduction, or rubbish separations. However, economic and political interests are sometimes confronted with environmental interests, so a change in society’s behavior with regard to the use of natural resources is necessary to ensure their future and that future generations can enjoy them, in order to fulfil the concept of sustainability introduced by the Rio summit of 1992. So the aim of this study is to analyse the water-saving behavior of Spanish households and identify the variables influencing its development.
