According to the global Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI), India is among the top five countries and performs the best among the G-20 countries.

The index is released by the German organisations German Watch, New Climate Institute, and Climate Action Network International.

The CCPI seeks to increase transparency in global climate politics and makes it possible to compare country climate protection initiatives and advancements.

According to the CCPI, 2023, India moved up two positions to take the eighth spot. The only four nations that were rated above India in the most recent CCPI report, which was presented at COP27 in November 2022, were Denmark, Sweden, Chile, and Morocco, which were ranked fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh, respectively. No nation received the first, second, or third places, which meant India effectively has the highest ranking among all developed economies, according to the report.

India scored highly in the categories of GHG emissions and energy use while receiving a medium rating for climate policy and renewable energy.
