These headwinds include reduced gross margin in wholesale gas and electricity, further increases in depreciation expenses from recent investments in plants, systems and growth and COVID-19 cost challenges.
The company says its strategy remains focused on growth, transformation and social licence. consistent with this strategy, AGL published a new Climate Statement earlier this year setting out our target to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
