Around 77% of Hungarians believe the war in Ukraine and the consequences on oil and gas prices should accelerate the green transition, according to an annual survey by the European Investment Bank (EIB), writes portfolio.hu.

The ratio is over the 65% rate across the European Union.

The EIB's latest Climate Survey shows 71% of Hungarians want highly polluting goods and services such as air travel and SUVs to be taxed more heavily, while 65% want energy prices to be tied to consumption, with those consuming the most being charged more.

Around 72% of Hungarians said inflation is their top concern, well over the 36% ratio for all people in EU member states.
