Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI)

Published on December 13, 2019
Current context: Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) 2019 is released on 11th Dec 19 at the COP25 climate summit in Madrid, Spain.
Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) 
  • India, for the first time, ranks among the top 10 in this year's CCPI.
  • India ranked 9th in the current levels of per capita emissions and energy use, showing that emissions are still comparatively low.
  • It suggests that India has yet to develop a roadmap to phase-out fossil fuel subsidies and reduce the country's high dependence on coal.
  • The index is jointly presented by German watch, New Climate Institute and Climate Action Network.
  • CCPI defines a country’s aggregated performance in 14 indicators within the four categories:
    1. “GHG Emissions”
    2. “Renewable Energy”
    3. “Energy Use”
    4. “Climate Policy”
  • The first three places of the ranking remained unoccupied as the report noted that none of the countries assessed is already on a path compatible with the Paris climate targets.
  • Sweden leads the ranking on rank 4, followed by Denmark (5) and Morocco (6).
  • Bottom five in this CCPI 2019 are Islamic Republic of Iran (57), Republic of Korea (58), Chinese Taipei (59), Saudi Arabia (60) and the United States (61).
