Risks and Opportunities


Sonangol receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. The company has not set any decarbonisation targets and has not developed a transition plan. Though the company has plans for 80MW of solar energy, this is small compared to its oil and gas business. There is no evidence that Sonangol intends to scale up its renewable energy business, instead, it discloses its aim to grow its exploration, production and refining segments. As a consequence, the company is projected to exceed its scope 3 carbon budget between 2022 and 2050 and its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions intensity is not aligned with its 1.5°C pathway.
