Risks and opportunities


Chugoku receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Company’s forecast emissions intensity in the next five years, based on the anticipated power plants, does not keep pace with the reduction in emission levels required by its 1.5°C pathway, which is 7% reduction per year. Chugoku will exceed its carbon budget by 46% by 2035. Planned start of nuclear power units over the coming years is expected to improve the company’s performance. However, the progress towards decarbonisation will be limited by its long-term commitment to coal and gas.
