The Global Green Economy Index: GGEI 2016 - Measuring National Performance in the Green Economy
Dual Citizen LLC, 2016
by: Dual Citizen LLC

This 5th edition of the Global Green Economy Index (GGEI) is a data-driven analysis of how 80 countries perform in the global green economy, as well as how expert practitioners rank this performance. Since its launch in 2010, the GGEI has signaled which countries are making progress towards greener economies, and which ones are not. The comparison of national green performance and perceptions of it revealed through the GGEI framework is more important than ever today. This is because while there is far greater public and political focus on climate change and green growth now than when the GGEI was first published, often the commitments and targets communicated by leaders do not match the reality.

This report will provide an overview of the newest GGEI results from the 5th edition, as well as more detail on how our research and data can enrich the work of others in this space. Our partners utilize the GGEI to benchmark their green performance, communicate areas requiring improvement, and show diverse stakeholders how they too can promote progress.
