Climate Change Performance Index 2008
The Climate Change Performance Index developed by Germanwatch is calculated using three weighted indexes:
*Emissions trends for energy, transport, industry and residential account for 50 % of total rating;
*A country’s current emissions level (CO2 emitted per primary energy unit, primary energy unit per GDP, primary energy unit per capita) is given a 30 % weight in the overall evaluation;
*Climate policy (national and international) weighs 20 %.
