This is what stops people from recycling more, finds a global survey
More than three-quarters of people around the world think recycling is important, but key barriers must be overcome to encourage them to act, according to a new sustainability study.
A joint survey by the World Economic Forum, SAP and Qualtrics questioned people in different parts of the world about their attitudes to climate change and sustainability.
- A lack of programmes and services is the top barrier to greater recycling uptake, a global sustainability survey shows.
- Globally, 64% of people feel personally responsible for acting on climate change.
- But many said recycling was either inconvenient, or they lacked trust in recycling programmes.
- People around the world think choosing products with reusable packaging is the most adoptable zero-waste measure.
