India at 10th spot in climate performance ranking reveals a new report

A new report published by German-watch along with Climate Action Network (CAN) and New Climate Institute released on 10th Nov mentioned that India secured 10th spot in climate change performance.


Major carbon-emitting nations such as China, the EU & America gained disappointing figures despite their several climate action commitments.

India has fairly done a good job as compared to the other big economies and performed well like the previous year and promised to constantly work towards achieving its climate change targets.

Highlighting the efforts and the progress made by India in the concerned field, the report said, “India is already on track to meet its 2030 emissions target (which is compatible with a well-below-2°C scenario), close to achieving its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) target of a 40% share for non-fossil fuel installed power capacity by 2030, and on course for a targeted 33–35% reduction in energy intensity by the same year”.

“As an independent monitoring tool, the CCPI has a leading role providing information on the Paris Agreement’s implementation phase. The CCPI has provided analysis of countries’ climate protection performance since 2005,” the report said.

The report came out on the sidelines of the ongoing UN Climate conference COP 26 in Glasgow which is witnessing major countries pledging towards climate change targets.
