The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) 2019 was released on the sidelines of a UN summit on global warming. As per the Index, Sweden has topped the list while India was on 11th position.
The European Union as a whole rose from 21st to 16th place, but its biggest economy, Germany, fell from 22nd to 27th because of its reliance on lignite coal, a big source of greenhouse gas emissions. Saudi Arabia came last, in 60th place, partly due to its obstructive role during international climate negotiations.
