Risks and opportunities


GAC is awarded a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near term, its score would most likely remain the same. The company’s considerable improvements in reducing its fleet emissions, assuming that its low carbon vehicle sales continue to increase at the same level of growth, should keep it aligned with the low-carbon pathway. However, GAC should set out a clear transition plan that includes emissions reduction targets to remain aligned with the low-carbon pathway in the long term.
