Risks and opportunities


Equinor receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. Its absolute emissions from current oil and gas fields and reserves are expected to exceed its 1.5°C carbon budget by 24% between 2019 and 2050. Likewise, its projected short-term emissions intensity trajectories suggest the company is not on track to deliver the rate of reductions required by its 1.5°C pathway.

However, Equinor is planning to increase its CapEx in low-carbon projects and has clear plans to develop three low-carbon business areas. These will enable the company to reduce scope 3 emissions intensity. It is also expected that Equinor will soon start reporting current and expected revenue from its newly-created renewables segment.
