Risks and opportunities


NTPC receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. NTPC’s future scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity is projected to barely decrease in relation to a business as usual (BAU) pathway. The rate at which NTPC’s future emissions intensity is projected to decrease between 2021 and 2025 should be around eight times higher, to align with its 1.5°C pathway. Without a stronger transition plan, more ambitious targets, greater investment in renewables, and a coal phase-out date, NTPC will most likely further deviate from its 1.5°C pathway.
