The 17th edition of the Climate Change Performance Index, by Germanwatch and NewClimate Institute, monitors climate mitigation progress of 60 countries and the European Union: Scandinavian countries, together with the United Kingdom and Morocco, lead the ‘race to zero’ / Australia, South Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Kazakhstan are among the worst performers
Scandinavian countries are leading the way in climate protection, together with Morocco and the United Kingdom. Leaders Denmark, Sweden and Norway occupy ranks four to six in the new Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) 2022, presented today by Germanwatch, NewClimate Institute and Climate Action Network (CAN). Places one to three again remain vacant because no country’s measures, thus far, have been sufficient to achieve an overall ‘very high’ rating with none following a path necessary to keep global warming within the 1.5°C limit.

New ranking of 58 countries with the highest emissions published today: None of the countries surveyed are on a path compatible with the Paris Agreement goals / Emissions are decreasing in more than half of the countries analyzed / USA is at the bottom of the ranking

The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) 2021 published today paints a mixed picture of progress by the European Union (EU) on climate action. While the Scandinavian EU countries, Portugal and the EU as a whole rank high on the index with relatively good indicators, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic stand out as outliers on climate progress within the bloc. In the overall ranking, the EU has improved from the 22nd place last year to the 16th place this year, almost exclusively thanks to a much better rated climate policy. The CCPI analyzes and compares climate protection across 57 countries (plus EU as a whole) with the highest emissions, which together account for 90 percent of global emissions.

Supporting the Western Balkans' Energy Transition
An Imperative Task for the German EU Council Presidency

Long-term stability and prosperity in the Western Balkans is closely interlinked with the fate of the EU. A positive development in the region and the maintenance of good relations are in the EU’s strategic interest. Geopolitical interests continue to compete in the Western Balkans: China is increasingly rivalling ideas of international solidarity and co-operation offered by the EU. This has become most apparent during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic crisis that followed. The new momentum of recently extended financial support should be the starting point for a more serious cooperation with the Western Balkans on the energy transition. The German EU Presidency in the second half of this year should focus on making energy transition partnerships a reality. This is an opportunity that the EU should not miss.

Kampagne '100 Prozent Zukunft'

Logo: 100 Prozent Zukunft

Einhundert Prozent Erneuerbare Energien in Deutschland und der EU bis 2050 – das war die Kernforderung der Kampagne „100 Prozent Zukunft“. Um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, konnten BürgerInnen, Organisationen und Wirtschaftsvertreter ihre Projekte lokal vernetzen und Politiker vor Ort motivieren, für die Energiewende aktiv zu werden. Das Team Deutsche und EU-Klimapolitik setzt die Arbeit der Kampagne bei Germanwatch auf mehreren Ebenen fort, etwa durch ein Handbuch zu Bürgerbeteiligung beim Stromnetzausbau.
