On the basis of standardised criteria, the CCPI currently evaluates and compares the climate protection perfor- mance of 57 countries and of the European Union (EU), which are together responsible for more than 90% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The last country to be added was Chile for the CCPI 2020.
The CCPI assesses countries’ performance in four categories:“GHG Emissions” (40% of overall score), “Renewable Energy” (20% of overall score), “Energy Use” (20% of overall score) and “Climate Policy” (20% of overall score).
The table shows the overall ranking and indicates how the countries perform in the different index categories.
Climate Change Performance Index – U.S. ranks at the very bottom #61.
