The Climate Change Performance Index is a scoring system designed by the German environmental and development organisation Germanwatch e.V. to enhance transparency in international climate politics.

 The Climate Change Performance Index was first published in 2005 and an updated version is presented at the UN Climate Change Conference annually.

On the basis of standardised criteria, the index evaluates and compares the climate protection performance of 57 countries and the European Union (Status 2020), which are together responsible for more than 90% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

No country performs well enough in all index categories to achieve an overall very high rating in the index. Therefore, once again the first three ranks remain empty.

While only two G20 countries, the UK (7th) and India (9th), are ranked in the “high” category, eight G20 countries are remaining in the worst category of the index.

The bottom five in this year’s CCPI are Islamic Republic of Iran (57), Republic of Korea (58), Chinese Taipei (59), Saudi Arabia (60) and the United States (61), rated low or very low across almost all categories.


In this year’s index, Sweden leads the ranking on rank 4, followed by Denmark (5) and Morocco (6).

As an independent monitoring tool, it aims to enhance transparency in international climate politics and enables comparison of climate protection efforts and progress made by individual countries.

About the Climate Change Performance Index, developed by Germanwatch and New Climate Institute.

Published annually since 2005, the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) tracks countries’ efforts to combat climate change.

The Climate Change Performance Index by Germanwatch and New Climate Institute published together with the Climate Action Network (CAN) is a ranking of the 57 countries (new: Chile) and the EU, collectively responsible for about 90% of global GHG emissions. The four categories assessed are:GHG Emissions (40%), Renewable Energy (20%), Energy Use(20%) and Climate Policy (20%).

Within the categories GHG Emissions, Renewable Energy and Energy Use the CCPI also evaluates to what extent the respective countries are taking adequate action to be on track towards the global Paris-goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C.

The latter is based on expert assessments by NGOs and think tanks from the respective countries.

Therefore, the CCPI is an important tool to enhance transparency in international climate politics and enables comparison of climate protection efforts and progress made by individual countries.
