The authors wish to note the following: “We thank attentive readers who have noticed errors in the country labels in Figure 2: Romania has been labeled twice, the Republic of Korea has no label and the Mexico has been labeled in the wrong position. These errors did not involve the underlying data.

We found that the main analyzes used environmental performance data (EPI) from 2008, reported in Table 2. However, the prediction models and Figure 2 used EPI data from 2016, which is also referenced in the text. A new analysis showed very similar results with each dataset and led to the same conclusion: the bivariate association of social mindfulness (SoMi) with EPI-2008 is β = 0.60, t(27.04) = 3.83, P = 0.001; for EPI-2016, it is β = 0.61, t(27.02) = 4.00, P

Bivariate relations at national level with SoMi in three areas.

Finally, a labeling error in one of the data files meant that Singapore was not included in the country level analyzes. A new analysis including Singapore produced almost identical results. All effect sizes were found to be virtually unchanged and all inferential tests led to the same conclusions as the first ones, including the association between SoMi and the income inequality index (Gini) which was confirmed to be insignificant. , P = 0.070 (see OSF link, https://osf.io/8w2mg/). Since no conclusion changes, all results are retained and no further changes have been made. The updated results are provided in the OSF repository (https://osf.io/8w2mg/). “

Corrected Figure 2, its legend and corrected Table 2 appear below. The online version has been corrected. The SI Annex has been corrected online to show the correct reference of the dataset, as described above.
