Risks and opportunities


SK Innovation receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. With its heavy reliance on the emissions-intensive coking technology for oil refining and an oil dominated product mix, the company is not on track to improve alignment with its 1.5°C pathway. The company has set clear plans for its electric vehicle battery business until 2025. However, the limited ambition of its targets and lack of a plan to reduce oil output undermine this and suggest that the company’s performance is unlikely to improve.
