Risks and Opportunities


Kansai Electric Power receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Kansai Electric Power is projected to reduce the emissions intensity for its own energy generation by approximately 20% between 2022 and 2027. However, it must reduce its emissions intensity by approximately 37% to align with its 1.5°C pathway in 2027. The company is projected to significantly exceed its 1.5°C carbon budget due to its future reliance on fossil gas and coal for the period 2022-2037. Unless it reconsiders this intended reliance, it is not projected to align with its 1.5°C pathway.
