Risks and opportunities


China Eastern Airlines Corp receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. China Eastern’s emissions intensity for 2021 is higher than the intensity required by the company’s 1.5°C scenario, although the value is skewed by the impact of COVID-19. Even if the company continued its pre-pandemic trend of reductions (about 2% annually) it would not align with its pathway. In principle, China Eastern is aligned with IATA and ICAO regarding carbon neutrality but has not set any emissions targets. There is no evidence that China Eastern has a low-carbon transition plan.
