Horizon Research: New Zealanders’ Climate Change Actions and Attitudes

Prepared for Motu Economic and Public Policy Research and the Sustainable Business Council by Horizon Research.

This report summarises the results of a survey of 2,246 New Zealanders aged 18+ who are members of the HorizonPoll national online research panel. The survey has a maximum margin of error of 2.1% and examines New Zealanders’ attitudes to important problems facing the world and New Zealand, climate change and household actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Where estimated numbers of New Zealanders are shown in this report, they are based on the New Zealand population 18 years of age or over derived from the 2013 New Zealand Census of Population and Dwellings.

Questions were drawn from work done internationally, particularly in the United States of America.
