India maintains top 10 position on climate performance index; China at 37, US 55 | India News

GLASGOW: India has maintained its place in the top 10 best-performing countries for the third year in a row in the global Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) released by Germanwatch on the sidelines of COP26 on Tuesday.
The report noted that no country performed well enough across all index categories to achieve a very high rating in CCPI overall. That is why the top three places in the general classification remain empty again. Denmark, which is in 4th place, is the highest ranked country in CCPI 2022, but it is not performing well enough to achieve a very high rating overall. Thus, in tenth place, India is the seventh country.
India significantly maintained its 10th position despite operational difficulties hit by the pandemic, allowing some regulatory flexibility to get the country’s economy back on track.

China, the largest current emitter, was ranked 37th (up from 33rd last year), while the second most current emitter, the US, was ranked 55th in the CCPI 2022, which published the 2021 performance index. .

The performance of these countries, which together account for 92% of global greenhouse gas emissions, is assessed in four categories: GHG emissions, renewable energy, energy consumption and climate policy.

The report noted that no country performed well enough across all index categories to achieve a high overall rating in CCPI. The top three places in the general classification therefore remain empty. Denmark is the highest ranked country in CCPI 2022, but it is not performing well enough to achieve a high rating overall.
The performance of the G20 countries, which are responsible for about 75% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, shows that the UK (7th), India (10th), Germany (13th) and France (17th) belong to four G20 countries. the best performing ones. Eleven countries, on the other hand, receive a low or very low overall rating. Saudi Arabia is the worst performing country among the G20, in 63rd place.
