South Korea's Air Quality Is Worried About The Global Ranking Of 119
Feb 25, 2019

Recently, many places in South Korea have experienced haze and air quality is worrying. The Yale University and Columbia University research team published the "Environmental Performance Index (EPI) 2018" report at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland on the 23rd. According to the report, the Korea Environmental Performance Index has a combined score of 62.3 points and ranks 60th out of 108 respondents.


Although the South Korean ranking has risen 20 places from the 80th place two years ago, the overall score has declined, which is lower than the 70.61 points in 2016, which is equivalent to the increase in the ranking of South Korea, but the environmental situation is even worse.


The top six countries with the highest scores are Switzerland, France, Denmark, Malta, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Among the world's major countries, Germany ranked 13th, Italy 26th, Japan 20th, Canada 25th, and the United States ranked 27th. China and India rank behind, with 120 and 177 respectively.


South Korea's air quality ranking has risen 54 places from 173 places two years ago to 119, which is a level of backward countries. The South Korean air quality score is 61.19 points, which is lower than the average of 67.86 points in the past 10 years.



EPI provides indicators for assessing the sustainability of countries through 24 projects in 10 areas, including air quality, water quality, heavy metals, biodiversity, fisheries, climate and energy, pollution, water resources, and agriculture.
