A pilot environmental index with nine components is constructed for the UK. Public opinion poll results are used to assign weights to the components in the overall index. The index remains roughly constant for the period 1980 to 1988. Different sets of opinion poll results produce very similar index values, suggesting that this may be a feasible weighting method. Implications for policymaking are discussed.
