Highlights from the four main dimensions making up the GGEI - leadership, policy, cleantech investment and sustainable tourism – include:
- The leadership performance index shows that South Africa got a big boost after hosting COP17 in Durban, but its green reputation did not improve commensurately.
- Actively communicating 2020 renewable energy goals drives positive perceptions of nationalpolicy in our survey, but the pace of actual progress is uneven at best.
- Experts continue to view Germany, China, the United States and India as the best targets forcleantech investment but smaller nations - notably Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Israel - aregaining recognition.
- The United Kingdom is tied with New Zealand at the top of the sustainable tourism.
Results from the 2012 GGEI show that Germany and Denmark topped both the perception and performance rankings, with Copenhagen ranked as the #1 green city. For a press release summarizing these results and other findings, please click here.
