Trend

Sasol receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Sasol is still heavily reliant on coal and plans for natural gas to be its bridge towards a low-carbon transition. The company includes solar and wind energy projects in its long-term strategy but to a lesser extent than gas because of the intermittent output of these renewable sources. Sasol is reluctant to develop biomass or green hydrogen projects. The company states that the high costs, nascency and challenges in scalability means the timelines for such projects are not aligned with its 2030 and 2050 targeted emissions reductions.
