General questions

What is the CCPI and what is it for?
Why are many countries (for example most of the African countries) not included/assessed in the CCPI?/ What is the basis of selecting the countries in the CCPI and why are others not included?
When was the CCPI first published and has its methodology changed since then?
In which areas does the CCPI have an impact?

Questions on data/data sources

How is data for the CCPI obtained?
Does the CCPI use a country’s overall GHG Emissions or per capita GHG Emissions?
Why do renewable energy shares in the CCPI sometimes differ from official energy balances published by the countries?
Who are our experts?

Methodological questions

What methods are used to calculate the scores?
When was the methodology revised? What exactly was changed?
Are emissions from land use, land use change and forestry included in the category GHG Emissions?
Why is the GHG Emissions indicator the most heavily weighted at 40%?
What influence does the expert feedback have on the overall result?
Does biomass/ wood combustion for energy generation count towards renewable energy?
How does the CCPI assess whether countries are aligned with the well-below-2°C target of the Paris agreement?
How are pathways calculated?
What is the difference between the indicators assessing the current level and those assessing current levels compared to a well-below-2°C compatible pathway?
Does assessment of current trends in the renewable energy category mean that countries with already high shares of renewable energy are at a disadvantage?

Questions on CCPI results

Why are the first three positions in the ranking unoccupied?
Why is country x ranked so low/high?
Where can I find the results from the last years (until 2007)?
How do I read the target comparison graph?
