Declining throughout all categories in the CCPI 2021, Lithuania drops out of the top ten and is now ranked 15th, however still receiving a high overall rating.
Rising trends in GHG emissions per capita, as well as in Energy Use per capita drive Lithuania’s overall decline in the respective categories, which are both rated medium. The Renewables category and the Climate Policy category both remain rated relatively high. Nevertheless, Lithuania significantly declines in experts’ annual climate policy evaluation, who rated the country’s climate mitigation efforts as not ambitious enough.
