Risks and opportunities


Three Gorges receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. Three Gorges is not on track to achieve the reduction in emission levels required by its 1.5°C pathway due to its business activities in fossil fuel energy. It is projected to exceed its carbon budget by 135% in 2035. However, the company’s new commitment to peak carbon emissions by 2023 and reach carbon neutrality by 2040 could lead to a declining trend for fossil fuel power generation emissions.
