Environmental Policies and Individual Behaviour Change (EPIC) Survey
The OECD EPIC Surveys explore the drivers behind household behaviour and how policies may affect decisions in key consumption areas. Following two previous rounds of the EPIC Survey in 2008 and 2011, a third round was implemented in 2022 with a sample of more than 17,000 households across nine countries: Belgium, Canada, Israel, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. The third round addresses household behaviour in four key areas: energy, transport, waste and food consumption.
