40% of 100% of the British electorate, across different groups including across supporters of both the Labour and Conservative parties, say pollution and climate change are a big issue for Britain, topping the list of concerns …

“Concern about the environment and climate change has reached its highest-ever score in this month’s Ipsos MORI Issues Index – likely an impact of the COP26 conference. There is also widespread agreement on this priority across different groups including across supporters of both the Labour and Conservative parties, although younger people stand out as putting COVID-19 marginally ahead.”

Mike Clemence, a researcher at Ipsos MORI

That 40% of a 100% of the British electorate in November 2021 is greater than the 42.2% vote share, on a 67.52% turnout, Boris Johnson won in the General Election of December 2019.

  • Four in ten say issues around pollution and climate change are a big issue for Britain; the highest score recorded for this issue since 1988 and just the third time it has topped the list of national concerns
  • Over a quarter see COVID-19 as a big issue, the same level as in October
  • Lack of faith in politicians and politics enters the top ten but remains a smaller-scale concern

Ipsos MORI’s Issues Index is conducted monthly and provides an overview of the key issues concerning the country.

Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,001 adults aged 18+ across Great Britain.

The answers are spontaneous responses, and participants are not prompted with any answers.
