- Assessment Note
Zhejiang Geely Holding Group received a full ACT assessment in 2019. The 2019 scorecard for this corporate group should read "Zhejiang Geely Holding Group" and will be updated shortly.
The company has reported its scope 1 and 2 manufacturing emissions since 2016. When combined with Volvo’s separately reported manufacturing emissions, there is a slow decrease from 0.308 grams CO2e per vehicle produced to 0.259 grams CO2e per vehicle produced, which is insufficient to be aligned with its well below 2-degree pathway. Its score could also improve in the significant ‘sold product performance module’, which looks at the in-use emissions of the company’s vehicles. Geely’s average vehicle in-use emissions in 2019 were 139 grams CO2e per kilometre, slightly lower than the 2014 average of 149 grams CO2e per kilometre.
The company’s low-carbon vehicle sales have steadily increased, but because Geely has seen a great increase in overall sales, its low-carbon vehicle sales share has not increased significantly since 2015. Geely should aim for more consistent and rapid decreases in vehicle in-use emissions, which can be achieved by increasing its low-carbon vehicle sales share and improving internal combustion engine efficiency.
