Risks and opportunities


Chugoku is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen. Chugoku’s projected emissions intensity is expected to diverge from its well below 2-degree pathway. The company’s target pathway does not meet the ambition required to keep its emissions intensity on track. Chugoku has not committed to a fossil phase-out. Its locked-in emissions exceed its decarbonisation budget. Chugoku is missing the strategic elements necessary to improve its low-carbon alignment. The lack of a transition plan and scenario analysis suggest the company will continue to fall further behind on its well below 2-degree pathway.
