- Performance score
- 7.7 /20
- Assessment Note
Chongqing Changan Automobile received a full ACT assessment in 2019.
A less positive trend observed is that the growth of low-carbon vehicle share observed in the previous assessment has stalled, resulting in worse performance on this indicator. This assessment showed that Changan has continued to build on its ‘Shangri-La Plan’ which was originally published in 2017. The company has raised ¥2.84 billion (US$406 million) in capital investment through the reform of its new energy vehicle subsidiaries and plans to set up eleven innovation centres with technology partners. The plan still lacks a long-term horizon and supporting analysis.
Changan can add credibility to its plan by embedding it with long-term emissions reduction targets and stress testing it against a well below 2-degree scenario. Changan also performs poorly on supplier engagement and new business models. Improving performance across these areas could enhance Changan’s competitiveness by demonstrating its commitment to the low-carbon transition.
