Germany and Scandinavian Countries Seen as Most Likely to Implement the European Green Deal

Countries Most Likely vs Least Likely To Do Their Fair Share to Implement the European Green Deal, Total Mentions, Expert Stakeholders, Globally, 2020/21

When asked which countries are most likely to do their fair share to implement the European Green Deal, more than half of sustainability experts surveyed point to Germany and Scandinavian countries.

In contrast, Poland and Hungary are among the least likely contributors, followed by the countries that are new to the EU – Romania and Bulgaria – as well as Greece.

For these sustainability experts, this perceived disparity of member states’ contributions is one of the biggest barriers to implementing the European Green Deal.

Notes:

  • Question wording: Which European countries are most likely to do their fair share to implement the European Green Deal?
