Risks and opportunities


E.ON receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. E.ON has already transitioned and achieved significant scope 1 and 2 emissions reduction. It has set up new GHG targets in 2020 to focus on emissions from its remaining small scale combined heat and power (CHP) plants and scope 3 emissions from purchased power sold to end customers and combustion of natural gas sold to end customers. However, it appears that the company has set these targets but is lacking a clear plan for achieving the reduction milestones.
