Cyprus Moves Up Global Eco Index
A global metrics environment index places Cyprus 24 out of 180 countries for its priority on tackling issues like climate change and air pollution.
It is a marked improvement on two years ago when the 2016 Environmental Performance Index (EPI) ranked Cyprus at 40. The 2018 EPI ranks 180 countries on 24 performance indicators across ten issue categories covering environmental health and ecosystem vitality, the Financial Mirror reports.
Switzerland, France and Denmark are the top three in the index while Burundi is bottom with Bangladesh not far behind. Cyprus scored 72.60 points on the index, above USA, but lower than Greece’s 73.60 in 22nd spot and a long way behind Switzerland’s top score of 87.42.
