Majority of Icelanders Have Changed Behaviour Due to Climate Change
In a recent survey, 62.6% of Icelander reported having changed their behaviour in recent years to lessen their impact on the environment and climate, RÚV reports. The survey shows 51.6% of Icelanders have made changes to their daily shopping habits specifically in order to reduce their environmental impact. Fewer Icelanders, around one quarter, have changed their travel habits for the same reason.
The survey was conducted by Gallup on the occasion of an environmental conference the organisation is holding in Harpa this Friday. The survey asked respondents whether they had changed their behaviour in the past 12 months to lessen their impact on the environment and climate change, changed their habits in daily shopping in some way in order to reduce environmental impact and changed travel habits in some way in order to reduce their environmental impact.
