Corporate Lobbying Reviews

Analysis of Corporate Reviews on Climate Policy Engagement

The Global Standard on Responsible Climate Lobbying - instigated by investors and launched in March 2022 - highlights the need for companies to publish a detailed annual review to ensure that its climate policy engagement (direct & indirect via industry associations) is consistent with the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement.

In response to such investor requests, over 55 CA100+ companies have published a review of their industry associations' alignment on climate policy engagement. InfluenceMap has developed a methodology to assess the quality of these disclosures, benchmarked against investor expectations outlined by the PRI, IIGCC and Ceres. This assessment covers:

  • Disclosure & Transparency: Full transparency of the climate policy positions and engagement activities of the company and its industry associations, and clear explanations of the governance processes in place to ensure alignment on climate policy engagement;

  • Policy Alignment Process: Robust processes to identify and report on specific cases of misalignment between climate policy engagement and the Paris Agreement, including steps taken to address such misalignments.

InfluenceMap assesses CA100+ company reviews as part of an ongoing process to feed into active investor engagements. Up-to-date rankings and company scorecards can be found in the table below.
