Risks and opportunities


Datang is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen.

Currently, Datang has no transition plan, no emissions reduction targets, major dependency on coal-fired plants and no coal phase-out plan. There is also limited information demonstrating Datang’s integration of climate change issues. Hence, it is likely that Datang will diverge further from its well below 2-degree pathway in the future. It is also likely that Datang will announce a more effective and detailed renewable expansion goal in the future, given that the company currently only reports its continued intention to develop a low-carbon electricity portfolio.
