Industry Associations

LobbyMap assesses and scores over 150 industry associations globally on their climate policy engagement activities. Mirroring LobbyMap’s assessment of companies, an overview of the scoring system can be found here, with the full methodology here.

The table below contains a ranking of over 100 key industry associations. The industry associations are ranked according to their InfluenceMap grade, with those at the top having the highest grades (indicating support for Paris-aligned climate policy), and those toward the bottom having the lowest grades (indicating opposition to Paris-aligned climate policy).

InfluenceMap's coverage of industry associations is currently more developed in certain regions and sectors than others. In 2022, we are expanding our coverage of industry associations in key regions (e.g. China, India) and sectors (e.g. land-use). These associations will be added to the ranking table below, when available.

A fundamental part of LobbyMap’s assessment focuses on a company’s indirect influence on climate policy via its industry associations. This assessment produces a company 'Relationship Score', which is an aggregate assessment of how supportive or oppositional a company’s industry associations are in their climate change policy engagements. This analysis also accommodates an assessment of the strength of the relationship between a company and an industry association (e.g. a stronger weighting will be attributed where a company sits on the board of an industry association).
