G8 Climate Scorecards 2008

Posted on 03 July 2008  | 
New research examines the climate performance of G8 nations and five emerging economies, and reveals the G8 countries are lagging behind in the race against climate change.

The G8 Climate Scorecards 2008, a report by Ecofys, an independent consultancy, was commissioned jointly by environmental organization WWF and international financial services provider Allianz.

The scorecards rank the G8 countries according to nine quantitative indicators, such as comparing past emission trends since 1990 and progress against the country’s Kyoto target. They also score performance on three specific policy areas, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and development of carbon markets.
