Risks and opportunities


Exelon receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Exelon’s new 50% by 2030 and net-zero by 2050 targets may act as an incentive to reduce emissions. Moreover, the company is projected to reduce emissions intensity between 2020 and 2025 due to the retirement of some gas-fired plants. However, the company is still projected to exceed its carbon budget to 2035 and not reduce emissions at the rate required by its 1.5°C pathway. Exelon does not plan to replace natural gas generation with low-carbon alternatives or remove carbon using carbon capture and storage (CCS).
