Survey says: try harder.
New Zealand was at the top of the list, called the 2006 Environmental Performance Index, followed by five nations from northern Europe. The U.S. ranked below most of Western Europe and Japan, but ahead of Russia in the study, which evaluated a total of 133 nations. Earlier sustainability measurements were intended to show long-term trajectories, while this year's study focused on how governments dealt with their unique environmental situations.
