Risks and Opportunities


China Datang receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. China Datang states that it aims to achieve carbon neutrality in 2060, but the target lacks sufficient information to be assessed for its impact on the company’s emissions trends. The company’s emissions intensity is not expected to align with its 1.5°C pathway by 2027. The company plans to reach 50% of installed capacity of low-carbon energy and natural gas by 2025, but the proportion of low-carbon capacity in this goal is unknown. Its locked-in emissions are projected to significantly exceed its carbon budget, potentially as a result of its continued reliance on gas and other fossil fuels.
