Risks and opportunities


Sonatrach receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. An increasing share of gas in the company’s sold product mix led to a marginally downward trend in its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions intensity between 2014 and 2019. However, with no emissions reduction targets in place or clear plans to decarbonise its portfolio, the company will not be able to increase its emissions reductions at the rate required by its 1.5°C pathway. Further, Sonatrach’s early-stage renewable energy activities are undermined by its otherwise lacking low-carbon transition plan and the lack of a climate change strategy and governance.
