Risks and opportunities


HMM receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. HMM has decreased its emissions intensity between 2018 and 2021 at the rate required by its 1.5°C pathway. It is also projected to remain within its carbon budget for 2022-2036 . The company aims to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. However, it has not set regularly spaced intermediate targets, which could help the company increase near-term action to achieve its longer-term net-zero goal. Moreover, there is no evidence of strong financial commitment by the company towards the goal of decarbonisation.
