Risks and opportunities


GE receives a score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. In the short term, its power business Vernova is set to become independent and increase focus on renewable energy generation technologies. However, the company’s gas power business will remain a significant source of future emissions. At present, there are no clear indications of GE planning a substantial increase in low-carbon investments for Vernova’s renewable energy capacity. As a result, no substantial changes are predicted in the company’s business model in the near future
