CCPI 2019

With its overall very low performance, the Republic of Korea shows a very similar picture to last year’s edition of the CCPI. The country thus failed to achieve any improvement in the indicators of the very low-rated GHG Emissions and Energy Use categories.

CCPI 지수가 발표되었다. 작년 이맘 때 2018년 CCPI 지수에 대해서 글을 썼었는데, 올해 결과를 보니 2017년 58위, 2018년 57위, 2019년 다시 58위.

돈 안 쓰고 말로만 떠들었으니 당연한 결과라고 본다.

우리나라에 대한 평가는 다음과 같다. 부끄러워서 번역 못하겠다.

With its overall very low performance, the Republic of Korea shows a very similar picture to last year’s edition of the CCPI. The country thus failed to achieve any improvement in the indicators of the very low-rated GHG Emissions and Energy Use categories. This reflects high current levels of per capita GHG emissions and per capita energy use, with increasing trendsover recent years as well as insufficient 2030 targets in both categories. National experts highlight that the country will not meet its 2020 emission reduction target and that amendments of that target and the energy use target will most likely still be too unambitious to put the country on a well-below-2°C pathway. In the Renewable Energy category, the Republic of Korea continues to receive a very high rating for its renewable energy growth rate. However, as the current share of renewable energy in the energy mix remains at a very low level, the country is still among medium-performing countries in the Renewable Energy category. Acknowledging the government’s ‘Third Energy Master Plan (2019–2040)’, which aims to raise the share of renewables to 35% by 2040 and includes plans to significantly cut back coal power, national experts give an overall medium rating for the country’s performance in the Climate Policy category.
