Latest Report Released by CCPI
India is now rated eighth, up two places from last year’s ranking, per CCPI 2023. But no nation received the first, second, or third places. According to a statement from the ministry of power, India effectively moved up to fifth place as a result.
The only nations placed above India in the most recent CCPI assessment presented at COP27 in November 2022 were Denmark, Sweden, Chile, and Morocco. Since 2005, the CCPI has compared the climate performance of 59 nations and the European Union, responsible for 92% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, using a standardized methodology.
These 59 nations, which collectively account for 92% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, had their climate protection performance rated in four categories: GHG Emissions (40% of the overall score), Renewable Energy (20%), Energy Use (20%), and Climate Policy (20 percent).
A medium ranking was awarded to India for climate policy and renewable energy, as well as a high ranking for GHG emissions and energy use.
The updated ranking demonstrated that India’s efforts to switch to renewable energy sources and improve energy efficiency are having a significant impact. According to the most recent global climate change performance index, India will achieve its 2030 emissions goals.
