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 Climate Change Performance Index Rating Table shows the overall ranking and indicates how the countries perform in the different index categories.
