Product-service/systems (PSS) have been projected to be a potential solution to address overconsumption and to enable an enhanced sustainability performance. However, PSS do not always live up to their potential benefits, due to unintended changes in consumer behaviour. This study aims at investigating existing methods and tools to develop sustainable behaviour within PSS, alongside potential barriers and success factors. Based on a systematic literature review, a total of 46 methods to achieve sustainable behaviour were collected and analysed, and further discussed on the basis of the identified success factors and barriers.
