A new global survey has revealed that the majority of people around the world do not believe that governments should increase incentives for corporations that are environmentally friendly.
The survey, led by a research team from around the world, asked people from Africa, South America, North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania whether they agreed that governments should offer incentives to corporations that are environmentally friendly.
Overall, 4535 people participated in the survey, with a total result of 45.5% saying YES and 54.5% saying NO.
Breaking down the numbers by region, Africans voted 42.8% YES and 57.2% NO, South Americans voted 49.9% YES and 50.1% NO, North Americans voted 45.5% YES and 54.5% NO, Europeans voted 43.6% YES and 56.4% NO, Asians voted 45.5% YES and 54.5% NO, and Oceanians voted 49% YES and 51% NO.
The results of this survey suggest that while some people around the world are in favour of governments offering incentives to corporations that are environmentally friendly, the majority of people are not.
This survey may have implications for government policy going forward, as governments may be less likely to introduce incentive schemes for environmentally friendly corporations.
