Risks and opportunities


Saudi Electricity is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen. Projections for the company’s emissions intensity show that it is going to fall further behind on its pathway for emissions reductions. No emissions reduction targets are in place to reverse this trend. Locked-in emissions are projected to exceed the company’s decarbonisation budget. The lack of climate governance, low-carbon transition planning and scenario testing all suggest that Saudi Electricity will continue to diverge further from the Paris goals.
