The Climate Change Performance Index 2009

Deckblatt: The Climate Change Performance Index 2009
A comparison of the 57 top CO2 emitting nations

The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) is an innovative instrument that enhances transparency in international climate politics. On the basis of standardised criteria the index evaluates and compares the climate protection performances of the 57 countries that, together, are responsible for more than 90 percent of global energy-related CO2 emissions. The objective of the index is to increase the political and social pressure on those countries which up to now have failed to take initiatives on climate protection and which still neglect  the importance of the issue.
