Risks and opportunities


EDP is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely worsen. Although EDP is on track to meet its low-carbon aligned target, its limited performance on emissions reductions between 2013-2018 raise concerns whether this progress will be maintained. The company has planned its coal phase-out, but ongoing gas use to between now and 2033 means that its locked-in emissions exceed its low-carbon budget for absolute emissions. EDP has a comprehensive low-carbon transition plan and profitable low-carbon business models. However, without a clear strategy to phase out its gas assets in Europe, EDP will fall further behind on its low-carbon pathway.
