Climate Change Performance Index 2018

  • These are the Overall Results of the Climate Change Performance Index 2018. The ranking results are defined by a country’s aggregated performance regarding 14 indicators within the four categories GHG Emissions, Renewable Energy, Energy Use and Climate Policy.
  • The CCPI 2018 Results illustrate the main regional differences in climate protection and performance within the 56 evaluated countries and the EU. Despite decreasing growth rates in GHG emissions, still no country performed well enough to reach the rating “very high” in the 2018 index and therefore the top three ranks remain left open.
  • In the 2018 edition of the index, Sweden is leading the list, followed by Lithuania and Morocco, while Saudi Arabia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Republic of Korea, Australia and the United States form the bottom five of this classification, scoring "low" or "very low" across almost all categories.
