Risks and opportunities


Petrobras receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Petrobras’ current fuel and sold product mixes are not sufficient to drive alignment with the company’s 1.5°C pathway. The limited ambition of its scope 1 and 2 emissions reduction targets and the lack of a scope 3 emissions reduction target suggest that the company’s performance is unlikely to improve.

Petrobras’ investment plans still focus on oil and gas activities. While it does have a small renewable electricity business, the company has limited deployment plans to scale this up and achieve the level of change required for a low-carbon transition in line with a 1.5°C scenario.
