The over-arching aim of this survey was to produce dedicated, up-to-date and robust social survey data on environmental attitudes and behaviours to support the development and delivery of environmental policy, relating specifically to climate change, sustainable development and wellbeing, but also of relevance to other policy areas. The survey, which is modelled on Defra's Survey of Public Attitudes and Behaviours towards the Environment 2007, was undertaken among a quota sample of the Scottish adult population (aged 16+) between 18 August and 15 November 2008. The questionnaire included a suite of questions aimed at gauging why people do not always choose to adapt their behaviour in ways that may be helpful to the environment. It also illustrates responses as to the trustworthiness of environmental groups and charities as sources of information on climate change.
