Furthermore, the research offers an authors’ empirical data (n=400) in the form of the case study (Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan) on the people’ green technologies awareness, different types of green behavior and environmental lifestyle; evaluates correlates of people’ green behavior with sociodemographics and social context variables. Factor analysis shows the two highly interpretable types of people’ levels of green technologies adaptation are present: “Innovative Type” and “Conservative Type”. Key practical implications for the policy and decision makers are discussed.
