About CCPI

The Climate Change Performance Index is an instrument supposed to enhance transparency in international climate politics. Its aim is to encourage political and social pressure on those countries which have, up to now, failed to take ambitious actions on climate protection as well as to highlight countries with best-practice climate policies. On the basis of standardised criteria, the index evaluates and compares the climate protection performance of 56 countries and the EU that are, together, responsible for nearly 90 percent of global greenhause gas emissions. 80 percent of the evaluation is based on objective indicators of emissions, renewable energy and energy use. 20 percent of the index results are built upon national and international climate policy assessments by about 300 experts from the respective countries.
