Energy-efficient products can reduce the threat of global climate. This research aims to examine students’ intentions to use energy-efficient products by using theory of planned behaviour as the guiding principle. Data were analysed using descriptive analysis via the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The results of descriptive analysis revealed that of the twenty-six items assessed, two statements which represented the environmental awareness factor were the top important aspects highlighted by the respondents in respect to positive perception towards energy-efficient products. They reported that “the main cause of the climate change is a lack of environmental risk perceptions”. This is followed by statement “current environmental situations are very serious for our future”. Moreover, belief factor is also strongly upholding by the participants in this research. They asserted that reliability is important when considering energy-efficient products. Indeed, they strongly believe that environment is important when considering energy-efficient products. The findings advanced body of knowledge on student intentions to use energy-efficient products, which is not much enclosed in the literature in Malaysian context. Direction for future research is also furnished.
