What New Zealanders think – NZBCSD Survey

    • 76% believe climate change is a problem

    • 65%  believe effects are already happening

    • 53%  worry about climate change

    • 44%  believe personal lifestyles will be affected


New Zealanders may not make much of a fuss about climate change but the majority of them believe that it is an issue. Recently the NZ Business Council for Sustainable Development surveyed 2,851 New Zealanders about their attitudes to climate change and this is what they thought. As awareness increases communities will be looking to their local councils for support and information. Once communities want action the councillors will have to get on board. In some councils change could well be grass roots driven.
