Who's Leading The Low-Carbon Economy?
The Climate Institute/GE Low-Carbon Competitiveness Index is a snapshot of each country's current level of readiness for a low-carbon world. A total of nineteen variables (assigned to one of three categories) were chosen to represent different, although clearly interconnected, elements which will determine low-carbon competitiveness: the structure of the economy or 'sectoral composition', early preparation and future prosperity.
This interactive data visualisation allows you to view the rankings of the overall index, the three subindices or to click on a particular country in the index to show what is driving the change.
