The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) is an annual report published by Germanwatch, Climate Action Network (CAN) and New Climate Institute since 2005. CCPI is an independent monitoring tool that tracks the climate protection performance of around 60 countries and the European Union. These countries collectively generate about 90% of global greenhouse gas emissions. It aims to enhance transparency in international climate politics and enables a comparison of climate protection efforts and progress made by individual countries.
The report analyses countries in four categories having 14 indicators-- Greenhouse gas emissions (40% of total score), Renewable energy (20%), Energy use (20%) and Climate policy (20%). Denmark is the highest performing nation in the index. This year, India ranked at the 10th position in the index and continues to be among the top-performing countries within G20.
India is already on track to meet its 2030 emissions target (which is compatible with a well-below-2°C scenario), close to achieving its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) target of a 40% share for non-fossil fuel installed power capacity by 2030, and on course for a targeted 33–35% reduction in energy intensity by the same year.
Contributing to India’s strong performance this year, the CCPI country experts highlight the considerable improvement of renewables targets and the focus on implementation and achievement of NDC targets. The experts also stress India’s ambitious renewable energy policies, such as its targets of renewable electricity capacity of 450 GW and a 30% electric vehicle share by 2030.
This data story aims to highlight the rank of India in CCPI index 2022.
