Risk and opportunities


Exelon is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen. Exelon expects its, admittedly low, emissions intensity to increase in the short term. Without company-wide emissions reduction targets, there is not enough incentive for the company to focus on reducing its emissions from gas and purchased power. Exelon considers its business model to be low carbon compatible. It should replace its fossil fuel generation with renewables to be fully zero carbon aligned.
