The Barometer of Ecological Transformation gauged public opinion about climate change and measured the willingness of people around the world to accept solutions.
The first edition of the Ecological Transformation Barometer was conducted by Veolia in partnership with the research and consulting firm Elabe, using a sample covering more than half the world's population.
The Barometer takes in 25 countries(1) on 5 continents covering a sample of more than half the human population. The countries were chosen for their demographic weight and their relevance: countries on the front line of the effects of climate change, but also countries that are pioneers in ecological policies.
The scope of this Barometer allows us to assess the global and local level of acceptability of existing ecological solutions and to discover the brakes and levers that accompany the implementation of these solutions. An informative study that will help us to advance the debate and better understand how to achieve ecological transformation.
