On June 5, 2024, the 2024 Environmental Performance Index (EPI) report was published, ranking 180 countries on their efforts in climate change mitigation, ecosystem vitality, and environmental health. This year, new metrics have been introduced to evaluate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the protection of essential habitats.

Key Points:

  • New Metrics: The 2024 EPI introduces innovative metrics to assess GHG emissions and the effectiveness of protecting vital habitats, providing a more comprehensive overview of environmental performance.

  • Global Rankings: The EPI ranks 180 countries, offering insights into how nations are performing in areas critical to environmental sustainability and public health.

  • Climate Change Mitigation: The report emphasizes the progress made by the top-ranked countries in reducing carbon footprints and implementing policies to combat climate change.

The EPI, developed by Yale University, serves as a crucial tool for policymakers, researchers, and the public to understand and improve environmental outcomes globally. It highlights the importance of continued efforts and policy innovations to achieve sustainability goals.
