Switzerland will lose in the global climate, countries are compared, the seven ranks and is now ranked 16. The latest edition of the "Climate Change Performance Index" (CCPI) will be presented on Tuesday at the UN climate change conference in Madrid.
the reason for this relapse from rank 9 to rank 16 is the weakness of the Swiss climate policy, informed the WWF Switzerland on Tuesday. "Switzerland would have to double their ambitions at least, in order to meet their international obligations", was WWF-climate protection expert Patrick Hofstetter in the message quote. Although, the Federal Council announced in August, the net-Zero goal by 2050. It lacks, however, is still of any implementation strategy and a related reduction path, commented on the WWF. Before Switzerland, countries such as Sweden, Denmark, the United Kingdom, but also in Morocco or India would.
Also, Greenpeace Switzerland, commenting on the Swiss climate policy as inadequate. The reluctance on the part of Switzerland in the area of climate protection was not due to the economic consensus and the climate protests "acceptable". While still a reduction target will be discussed by 2030, 30 percent, were other countries, such as Denmark, much further and sought to 70 percent.
As in previous years, the ranks 1 to 3 have not been awarded. Climate Action Network (CAN), The New Climate Institute and Germanwatch, which together make the Rating, rated no country as good enough to achieve the objectives of the Paris climate agreement. The clearly best result is achieved, again, Sweden. China is working on rank 30. The United States has fallen back to last place, behind Saudi Arabia.
The climate rating compares a year, the climate protection performance of the 61 countries that together account for more than 90 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. (sda/red)
