Hungary ranks sixth among 56 countries on a list compiled by two European environment protection agencies on efforts made to stem pollution and carbon emmissions, reports state news wire MTI.


The ranking, created by the German Globalwatch and the Climate Action Network Europe (CAN Europe), considered such factors as the rate of carbon-dioxide emission and the number of measures created to protect the environment. The first three places on the list are occupied by Sweden, Germany and Iceland. Hungary, at sixth place, leads ahead of some of last year's top three countries, including the UK and Denmark.


The survey considered those 56 developed and developing countries that are responsible for 90% of the Earth's carbon-dioxide emissions.
