Risks and Opportunities


KEPCO receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. KEPCO is not projected to reduce its emissions intensity at the rate required by its 1.5°C pathway. The company aims to increase its renewables capacity to 49 GW by 2030, but it lacks a fossil fuel phase-out date. In 2022, fossil fuels accounted for about 55% of KEPCO’s generation mix. Moreover, though KEPCO conducts research and development (R&D) in CCUS to support its low-carbon business models, it does not disclose any associated R&D investment.
