In accordance with the Paris agreement, the signing countries have undertaken to reduce their emissions of climate gases, implying more government intervention to steer actors with climate policy measures. However, states face very different possibilities for gaining support for such interventions, especially the ones targeting individuals’ consumption patterns, due to for example the variation in economic development, the quality of political institutions, and other country variates. Even though most of the research on climate policy support has focused on individual factors, such as ideological position, values and socio-demographic factors, there are also studies out there showing that there is quite some variation in country support for various climate change policies. Using newly published data from the European Social Survey we explore whether variation in climate policy support is associated with level of corruption and individuals perceptions about political institutions and people in general. More specifically we test if the support for economic and rewarding instruments is negatively associated with level of corruption and if the support for legal and punishing instruments is positively associated with level of corruption. In comparison with other instruments we find that political and generalized trust are most strongly linked to punishing and economic instruments, such as environmental taxes.
