Climate Change Performance Index 2023.

The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) is an instrument to enable transparency in national and international climate politics. The CCPI uses a standardized framework to compare the climate performance of 59 countries and the EU, which together account for 92% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The climate protection performance is assessed in four categories: GHG Emissions, Renewable Energy, Energy Use and Climate Policy.

Methodology behind the CCPI

CCPI 2023 evaluates and compares the climate protection performance of 59 countries and the European Union (EU), which collectively account for more than 92% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The graphic below shows the CCPI’s components. The CCPI aims to deliver a comprehensive and balanced evaluation of the diverse countries evaluated. It uses 14 indicators (outer circle) and the following four categories:

  • GHG Emissions (40% of overall score)
  • Renewable Energy (20% of overall score)
  • Energy Use (20% of overall score)
  • Climate Policy (20% of overall score)

80% of the assessment is based on quantitative data from internationally recognised institutions.

The CCPI’s unique climate policy section evaluates countries’ progress in implementing policies working towards achieving the Paris Agreement goals.
