Risks and opportunities


KPC receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. With insufficient changes in its current production mix and sold product mix and no emissions reduction targets in place, the company is not on track to reduce its scope 1 and 2 and its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions intensities and align with its 1.5°C pathway. KPC has small-scale low-carbon business activities through its subsidiary Q8, but the company’s overall commitment to oil and gas means its business will not change in line with the low-carbon economy.
