Attitudes toward sustainable & responsible investment in Europe

Renewable energy, e-mobility, fair trade – issues related
to sustainability are more prevalent in public debate than
ever before. But to what extent do people in Europe take
social responsibility into account when it comes to their
financial investments? Do they know what sustainable
and responsible investment means and what is their
opinion of it? How do attitudes compare across Europe?
These are the central questions underpinning this study that took place at the same time as the UN Climate Change Conference of December 2018.

Our studies in other European countries are available at the bottom of the article.
