Bright Blue polling influential in The Committee on Climate Change’s recent net zero report

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) recently published their much anticipated report, Net zero: The UK’s contribution to stopping climate change, on the feasibility of the UK adopting a legal, net zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) target to be met by 2050.

The report draws on Bright Blue polling conducted last year to make the case of there being public support for a legal, net zero GHG target. In particular, our polling shows that 75% of UK adults are fairly or very concerned about climate change, and 64% favour the UK aiming to reduce GHG emissions to net zero in the next few decades.

The CCC’s report similarly cited another piece of Bright Blue’s polling work, that found climate change was the top issue that 18 - 25 year olds wanted senior politicians to address.
