India now Ranked 8th in Climate Change Performance Index

India is now ranked eighth after jumping up two spots, per the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI, 2023) published by German Watch, New Climate Institute and Climate Action Network International based in Germany.

The latest report of CCPI, released at COP27 on Tuesday, shows Denmark, Sweden, Chile and Morocco as the only four small countries that were ranked above India. The first, second and third ranks were not awarded to any country. An official statement said that India's rank is the best among all large economies.

India has also been ranked among the top 5 countries worldwide and the best among the G20 countries based on its Climate Change performance.

The CCPI aims to enhance transparency in international climate politics and enables comparison of climate protection efforts and progress made by individual countries.

Published annually since 2005, the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) is an independent monitoring tool for tracking the climate protection performance of 59 countries and the European Union. The climate protection performance of these 59 countries, which together account for 92% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, is assessed in four categories: GHG emissions (40% of overall score), Renewable Energy (20%), energy use (20%) and climate policy (20%).

Every year, the CCPI sets off important public and political debates within the countries assessed.
