Risks and Opportunities


PPL receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Based on forward-looking projections of its assets, PPL is expected to reduce its emissions intensity for its own energy generation by approximately 10% between 2022 and 2027 by increasing its share of fossil gas compared to coal. However, PPL must reduce its emissions intensity by approximately 37% to align with its 1.5°C pathway in 2027. Unless PPL reconsiders its intention to rely on coal and fossil gas, it is not projected to align with its 1.5°C pathway and will moderately exceed its 1.5°C carbon budget for the period 2022-2037.
