Switzerland scores first in global green rankings

Switzerland tops a new index that was released at Davos this weekend, which ranks countries in order of their sustainability efforts.

The Environmental Performance Index, tracks the performance of 178 countries representing 95% of global GDP, under two broad policy areas: ‘protection of human health from environmental harm’ and ‘protection of ecosystems’, that include indicators such as climate change, air quality and water management.

Switzerland came out on top, followed by Luxemburg, Australia, Singapore and the Czech Republic.
