Switzerland benefits from a top Environmental Performance

Switzerland benefits from a top Environmental Performance

Switzerland was the 32nd worst performing country in ClimatePositions 2010 (see the menu Contributions/Per Capita US$ Rank), but the Environmental Performance was the best of all surveyed countries. The diagram illustrates Switzerlands Environmental Performance 2004-2010, in comparison with the global average set at 100 (166 countries are included).

A hypothetical example: If Switzerlands Evironmental Prformance 2004-2010 had been as poor as the global average, the country would have been the 28th worst performer in 2010 instead of the 32nd. The additional Climate Contribution would have been 1.7 billion US$.

Data sources on environmental performance are from Yale and Columbia University reports, published 2006-2012 (links in the menu “Calculations”).
