Risks and opportunities


CFE receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Although CFE has stated an aim to reduce emissions intensity by 42% by 2024, without disclosing the scope and coverage of the target, it is not possible to assess the likelihood that it will affect emissions trends. Moreover, with no transition plan or commitments to deploy and invest in significant levels of low-carbon electricity generation, CFE is unlikely to achieve a decrease in its emissions in the near future at the rate required by its 1.5°C pathway.
