Risks and opportunities


BYD is awarded a trend score of +. If BYD were re-assessed in the near future, its score would most likely improve given the company’s continuous commitment to developing low-carbon vehicles. However, BYD has not published a time-bound emissions reduction target or a low-carbon transition plan. It is, therefore, unclear how the company is approaching a low-carbon future. Moreover, while BYD has not published a transition strategy, it has established multiple business models which contribute to its low-carbon transition. Given that a stable fraction of revenue – between 7 to 8 percent – comes from solar power solutions, to some extent BYD has prepared itself for a better alignment with the low-carbon transition.
