Risks and opportunities

Trend

Valero receives a trend score of -. If the company were assessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Valero has set a target for 20% reduction in scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity by 2025, but it does not have longer-term targets or a scope 3 emissions reduction target. As such, Valero is unlikely to see significant emissions reduction.

The company is undertaking renewable diesel, biofuels and wind power projects, which could improve its alignment with its 1.5°C pathway. However, it is yet to implement these projects at scale, and currently, its renewable fuels production remains negligible compared with the size of its oil and gas operations.
