Risks and opportunities

Trend

Eletrobras is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen, largely because of the difficulty in achieving its demanding well-below 2-degree scenario pathway. Although only 5% of Eletrobras’ generation is fossil fuels, these are due to increase over the coming few years, putting pressure on its continued low-carbon alignment.
