Risks and opportunities


Uniper is awarded a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely stay the same. Uniper’s emissions intensity is projected to increase due to a large coal asset coming online in Europe and new gas assets in Europe and Russia, meaning the company will fall further behind its low-carbon pathway. Uniper’s planned emissions already take it above its well below 2-degree carbon budget. However, the company’s new strategy represents a significant step-change in its decarbonisation approach. Short-term investments to support the delivery of this strategy can improve the low-carbon alignment of Uniper’s business model.
