UK has 10% forest area, one of the lowest in planet this index is a scam[edit]

Uk has only 10% forest surface. While most sustainable countries are 60 to 70% forested. Uk has no biodiversity, Uk is by no means environmentally sustainable, it is overpopulated, and Uk surface is devastated by building and agriculture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:17, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

A 12 position ahead of countries keeping more than half planet biodiversity and buffering more than half the pollution overpopulated countries like Uk produce, make this index look like a scam. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:20, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

merging articles[edit]

Pilot_2006_Environmental_Performance_Index deals with the same subject. I suggest to merge the two, keeping Environmental_Performance_Index. --Spitzl 13:21, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

release date[edit]

There seems to be a contradiction between this article and the article Pilot 2006 Environmental Performance Index. The problem concerns the release date of the report. Since I just merged the two articles I copied the paragraph here for further discussion:

 The report, released on 26 January 2006 at the World Economic Forum, was authored by Yale and Columbia Universities. It was done in collaboration with the World Economic Forum and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

In my opinion it is unlikely that a report with data for 2006 can be released already at the beginning of that year. However, the collaboration with Columbia University and the European Commission may be correct. Anybody knows more about this? --Spitzl 11:20, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Ranking updated on 23 Jan 2008[edit]

The new ranking for 2008 is available, any volunteers to work on the update. Suggestion: What about keeping a table with at least the top 5 for each year for the article to keep a historical record. Info available at Mariordo (talk) 20:23, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

In the introduction it sais, the EPI measures the performance of a country's policies. I find that misleading, since the EPI does not look at policies. It rather uses indicators that assess the state of the environment I suggest rephrasing it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Markheuer (talkcontribs) 14:54, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Merge with Environmental Sustainability Index[edit]

The Environmental Sustainability Index was the precursor of the Environmental Performance Index. It's not the exact same subject, but the EPI is a natural evolution of the ESI. Moreover, the ESI article does not meet GNG (not a single secondary source about the index) and therefore does not merit its own article. I think it is only natural that we include some info on it in this (EPI) article, and keep the other one as a redirect. —Ynhockey (Talk) 08:56, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
