Risks and Opportunities


China Three Gorges receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. The company’s locked-in emissions are expected to significantly exceed its 1.5°C carbon budget over the period 2022-2037 due to the projected increase in its share of fossil fuel-fired electricity from around 8.7% in 2022 to 12% in 2027. Its emissions intensity is not expected to align with its 1.5°C pathway by 2027. China Three Gorges aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040 and has reached over 96% of low-carbon installed energy capacity. However, the company is unlikely to align with its 1.5°C pathway with its lack of a comprehensive transition plan and the projected expansion of its fossil fuels capacity.
