- 75% of Spaniards consider themselves to be informed about climate change, indicating the fundamental role of the media as a channel for disseminating information on this issue.
- Nine out of ten respondents consider that renewable energy consumption in the industrial sector is the measure that contributes most to sustainability.
- More than half of Spanish society (58%) is willing to pay more for a sustainable product, prioritising automotive and food over clothing and tourism.
The study “Spain and climate change: habits, challenges and opportunities” promoted by ENGIE Spain and conducted by GAD3 on a sample of 3600 surveys throughout Spain indicates that Spanish society is increasingly aware of the challenge of climate change, while companies and administrations still have a long way to go to achieve the full ecological transformation in our country
This Friday, Narciso Michavila, president of GAD3, took part in the presentation of the study at the “Engie Green Friday” event on the occasion of World Environment Day. In his opinion, “if climate change is a collective threat, we can only get out of it with a collective conscience”. He adds that the decision-maker’s obligation is to place truthful information and treat the citizen as an adult because “that way they will behave like an adult”.
