Key results overall rating: Still no countries are ranked in the top three overall positions

The world map shows the aggregated results and overall performance for the evaluated countries

  •  No country performs well enough in all index categories to achieve an overall very high rating in the CCPI. Therefore, once again, the top three places in the overall ranking remain empty.
  •  Denmark is the highest ranked country in CCPI 2022, but it does not perform well enough to achieve an overall very high rating.


  • With the United Kingdom (7th), India (10th), Germany (13th), and France (17th), four G20 countries are among the high-performing countries in CCPI 2022. Eleven countries receive a low or very low overall rating; the G20 are responsible for about 75% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Saudi Arabia is the worst-performing country among the G20, ranked 63rd.

EU performance: 

  •  Overall, the EU drops six places from last year, to now rank 22nd, and no longer be among the high performers. Notably, because of the CCPI indicators, the EU and its 27 member states are responsible for the EU’s outcome.
  • Denmark and Sweden are the best-performing EU-countries, at a respective 4th and 5th. A further five countries are high performers.
  • Up 10 ranks, the Netherlands is one of the most improved countries since last year’s CCPI, though still performing at a medium level.
  • Slovenia, Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary are among the worst-performing countries, each receiving a very low rating.
