EIB: Hungarians’ views on green transition more pessimistic than EU average

A survey by the European Investment Bank (EIB) found that 49 percent of Hungarians thought the transition to a green economy would bolster growth, as against 56 percent of European Union citizens overall.

The survey found that 52 percent of Hungarians thought climate policy measures would reduce the number of jobs and worsen the quality of life. Fully 61 percent of EU citizens said that transition would improve quality of life, it said.

One-third of Hungarians said climate change would be curbed by 2050, while 62 percent anticipated serious issues continuing into the middle of the century.

Fully 20 percent of Hungarians, including 35 percent of 20-29 year olds, said they contended with having to move due to climate change.
