What is the CCPI?

The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI), published annually since 2005, is an independent monitoring tool for tracking countries’ climate protection performance. It increases transparency in national and international climate policy and enables comparison of individual countries’ climate protection efforts and progress.

The CCPI indicates the climate mitigation efforts of 57 countries and the EU, which collectively account for over 90% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Results are compiled with the aid of 400 national experts evaluating their countries’ most recent national and international climate policies.

The CCPI is distributed to key media worldwide (e.g. The Guardian, China Daily, The Times of India) and frequently triggers debates in national parliaments and governments.
The Paris Agreement is now entering a crucial phase of national and regional implementation. The CCPI provides long-standing and reliable analysis conducted on the leaders and laggards in climate protection. This makes it usable as a powerful instrument to hold governments accountable for their responsibility to act on the climate crisis, to inform the process of raising climate ambition, and to stimulate a race to the top in climate action.

Consortium

Germanwatch e.V.

Following the motto “Observing, Analysing, Acting”, Germanwatch has been actively promoting global equity and the preservation of livelihoods since 1991. In doing so, we focus on the politics and economics of the North and their worldwide consequences. The situation of marginalised people in the South is the starting point of our work. Together with our members and supporters as well as with other actors in civil society, we intend to represent a strong lobby for sustainable development. We attempt to approach our goals by advocating for the prevention of dangerous climate change, for food security, and compliance of companies with human rights.
