Risks and opportunities


A trend score of – is awarded to SAIC. If the company were reassessed in the near term, its score would likely worsen. Its small share of sales from low-carbon vehicles lead to fleet emissions that are significantly misaligned with the low-carbon pathway. The company’s lack of a low-carbon transition plan, or even a low-carbon vehicle strategy, indicates that SAIC is likely to fall further behind as the demand for action increases in the short to medium term. Moreover, the company’s worsening sold product performance will have a significant negative impact on SAIC’s preparedness for a low-carbon economy.
