CLP has embarked on the “Utility of the Future” transition with a shared vision to bring cleaner and smarter power supply to customers, while combating the challenges from climate change and technology disruption. CLP’s key targets and commitments are to;

  • Achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by 2050
  • Meet science-based targets for 2030 to align with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels
  • Phase out coal-based assets by 2040 — a decade earlier than pledged previously
