This report updates CDP’s research and League Table for European electric utilities, first published in May 2015. It ranks 14 of the largest publicly listed power generators in Europe on readiness for a low carbon transition.
Electric utilities are among the largest contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions, and as an energy supply sector are key to other sectors’ ability to decarbonize. Deep decarbonization and near zero net emissions are required from EU utilities by 2050 to achieve below 2°C of warming.
The summary League Table below is based on detailed analysis across a range of carbon and water-related indicators which could have a material impact on company performance.
