Risks and Opportunities


CFE receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. CFE is expected to reduce the emissions intensity of its own energy generation by approximately 8% between 2022 and 2027. However, it must reduce its emissions intensity by approximately 41% to align with its 1.5°C pathway in 2027. Due to its planned reliance on coal, fuel oil and fossil gas, CFE is projected to significantly exceed its 1.5°C carbon budget for the period 2022-2037. While CFE plans to increase its low-carbon capacity, unless it reconsiders its intention to rely on fossil fuels, it is not projected to align with its 1.5°C pathway.
