Risks and opportunities


Dongfeng is awarded a trend score of -. If Dongfeng were reassessed in the near term, its score would most likely worsen. Dongfeng’s expected locked-in fleet emissions, those from vehicles recently sold or projected to be sold soon, are already above its allocated budget under the low-carbon pathway. Given the company’s limited strategic plans to increase its low-carbon vehicle sales and its seeming lack of low-carbon investments, Dongfeng is not expected to become more aligned with the industry’s pathway.
