Risks and opportunities


AGL is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen. AGL’s emissions reduction performance is predominantly influenced by the closure dates of its three coal plants. While it is starting to grow its renewable capacity, the emissions from its thermal plants remain stubbornly high well into the 2030s. Until AGL closes Liddell in 2023 its performance against the well-below 2-degree pathway will only deteriorate.
