Risks and opportunities


CLP is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen. The reduction of CLP’s emissions intensity from 740 gCO2e/kWh in 2018 to 700 gCO2e/kWh in 2019 was aligned with its well-below 2-degree pathway. However, the company is not expected to maintain this rate of decarbonisation, as it plans to keep its large high-emitting, coal-fired generation assets open into the 2030s. CLP is committed to strengthening its climate targets every five years and intends to track its progress against a well-below 2-degree science-based target. This could increase the speed of its low-carbon transition. However, CLP is behind on achieving its renewable capacity target of 20% in 2020. The company will therefore need to upgrade its low-carbon investment and low-carbon targets.
