While mainstream media outlets globally may be focused on the relationship between climate change and extreme weather, crop performance, and infrastructure resilience, economists and business strategists alike are turning toward greener measures and outlooks of economic performance. The 2018 Global Green Economy Index (GGEI) by Dual Citizen LLC is one of several initiatives—others include the Green Growth Knowledge Platform and the UN Partnership for Action on Green Economy—working to provide policy guidance, promote good practices, and generate and promote the data necessary to inform decisions on policies and investments necessary for accelerating the green transition. 

  • The GGEI 2018 measured the green economic performance of 130 countries across four dimensions: leadership and climate change, efficiency sectors, markets and investment, and the environment.
  • In today’s Viz of the Day, we showcase the 2018 GGEI overall results—spoiler alert, Sweden is top ranked, again—with a special data feature on the performance of five the world’s largest economies on a specific dimension of the index: Markets & Investment. 

Markets & Investment Highlights

The GGEI 2018 results below show that a decade post the first global green economy initiative from the UN Environmental Program, even the world’s largest economies have made uneven progress toward the investments and policies required to support a green economy transition. 

  • Among five of the world's largest economies, Germany has the strongest performance in the overall index (ranked 6th), followed by Japan (19th), China (28th), the United States (31st), and India (36th).
  • Turning to Markets & Investment, Japan notably outranked other large economies according to GGEI’s corporate sustainability measure. This calculation covers the policies of large market cap companies in each country in terms of (i) disclosing climate change data to leading certification authorities; (ii) the rating of companies by those authorities; and (iii) commitment to science based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Unsurprising to those who follow the renewable energy sector, China outperformed in net 5-year installed renewable capacity. You can explore this topic further in our recent viz exploring renewable power installation globally and the phenomenon of negative energy prices in Europe.

Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Livestock

Have you ever wondered whether cattle rearing or car driving contributes more to the increase in greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the Earth’s atmosphere, thus exacerbating global warming? Look no further than today’s Viz of the Day, which provides insights on this issue courtesy of a report published by the Food and Agriculture Organization. The data clearly indicates that the modern livestock sector contributes more significantly to global warming than the whole of the transport sector. Among livestock species, cattle are responsible for nearly 65 percent of GHG emissions, with a single...

Hurricane Matthew's Impact in Figures

Hurricane Matthew is estimated to be the most powerful storm to hit the Caribbean region in the last decade. The hurricane has already uprooted hundreds of thousands of people in Cuba, Haiti, and Jamaica, according to the latest situation report from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The total population exposed to Matthew Cyclone is more than 10 million people—roughly equal to the total population of Haiti—and half of these people are vulnerable to the hurricane. We at Knoema have a special ongoing relationship with the government and people...

CO2 Emissions of Newly Registered Cars in Europe

Information that EU member states submit annually per Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 to the European Commission and onward to the European Environment Agency (EEA) on newly registered passenger cars provide a unique opportunity to analyze CO2 emissions. The data reveal thought-provoking trends from the perspective of purchasing patterns of lowest to highest emission cars and the corresponding potential contribution of each make and model to air pollution. Premium-class sport cars are the ‘dirtiest’ based on CO2 emissions, with Bugatti vehicles—each emitting more than half a kilogram...

Clean Air, Healthy Lungs

Air pollution occurs when chemical, physical or biological substances alter the natural characteristics of the atmosphere, potentially leading to respiratory and other diseases that can be lethal. Home furnaces, automobiles, industrial plants, and forest fires are the main sources of air pollution worldwide.Among the pollutants of greatest public health concern are particulate matter-including some forms of smoke, soot, dust, salt, acids, and metals - carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. Not all air pollution is manmade. Natural weather events, such as...
