CCPI 2022, the Climate Change Performance Index Report
Published annually since 2005, the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) is an independent monitoring tool for tracking the climate protection performance of 60 countries and the EU. Every year, the CCPI sets off important public and political debates within the countries assessed.
The CCPI aims to enhance transparency in international climate politics and enables comparison of climate protection efforts and progress made by individual countries. The
climate protection performance of those countries, which together account for 92% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, is assessed in four categories: GHG Emissions,
Renewable Energy, Energy Use and Climate Policy.
The countries’ commitments under the Paris Agreement are still insufficient: to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C a more ambitious climate action is urgently needed.
Informing the process of raising climate ambition In this context, the CCPI has gained further relevance as a long-standing and reliable tool to identify leaders and laggards in climate protection.
