Danes "keenest on green energy premium"

Almost three-quarters would pay more for better climate, Nordic poll finds; Finns and Icelanders less keen

Almost three-quarters of the Danish public would pay more for electricity and petrol in order to reduce the impact of climate change, according to a poll by the Nordic Council, a regional cooperation forum. The findings make Danes the most climate conscious of the region's populations. Least enthusiastic were Finnish and Icelandic consumers, of which only 32 and 45 per cent respectively said they would pay more for a lower climate impact. Almost all the region's citizens supported climate action coordinated through the Council, the poll found. See Nordic council press release (English) and report (Danish).
