NRG Energy, Inc
Primary Climate Goal
NRG Energy, Inc's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2025 should be equal to 36,127 Kt = 50% * 72,254 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, NRG Energy, Inc would need to reduce its emissions at least by 1,680 Kt per annum over the period from 2021 to 2025:
1,680 Kt = ( 36,127 Kt - 27,726 Kt ) / (2025 - 2020)
This translates into a +6.1% increase in 2021.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 50% by 2025 from a base year 2014, which it appears to have already achieved as of 2020. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
