In a joint letter on June 17th, Hydrogen Europe, Siemens Energy and Cummins urged the EU to adopt a 6% 2030 e-fuel target in the FuelEU Maritime, alongside a 5x e-fuel multiplier to promote their use.
InfluenceMap maintains the world’s leading database assessing corporate climate policy engagement (LobbyMap), covering over 350 companies and 150 industry associations globally. This database feeds data and analysis to the Climate Action 100+ (CA100+) initiative.
CA100+ is a voluntary investor initiative to ensure the world's largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters take necessary action on climate change, made up of 700 investors responsible for over $68 trillion in assets under management. CA100+ engagement focuses on 166 target companies that are critical to the net-zero emissions transition.
The CA100+ Investor Hub contains LobbyMap’s analysis of the CA100+ target companies and their industry associations, as well as additional resources on corporate lobbying disclosures and shareholder resolutions. From 2022, InfluenceMap's assessments on climate policy engagement will also feed directly into the CA100+ Net Zero Company Benchmark.
InfluenceMap welcomes engagement with CA100+ investors, companies, and industry associations on the issue of climate policy engagement.
If you have any questions, or would like to set up a call to discuss our analysis in more detail, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The table below contains a ranking of all 166 CA100+ target companies. The companies are ranked according to their InfluenceMap grade, with those at the top having the highest grades (signifying support for Paris-aligned climate policy), and those toward the bottom having the lowest grades (signifying opposition to Paris-aligned climate policy). Companies labelled 'n/a' are not given a grade because they have low-level engagement with climate policy and/or no strong links to industry associations currently covered by InfluenceMap's database.
Use the drop-down buttons to filter companies by sector or region, or search by name below. A summary profile and full access to the data underlying the assessments can be accessed via the links in the table.

On June 13th, Toyota, Ford, General Motors and Stellantis urged US Congress to lift a cap on the $7,500 electric vehicle tax credit, which incentivizes the purchase of EVs, citing recent economic pressures and supply chain constraints which are increasing the cost of manufacturing EVs. The $7,500 tax credit phases out after a manufacturer hits 200,000 vehicles sold - both General Motors and Tesla have already hit the cap and are no longer eligible for the consumer tax credits.
In a June 13th comment letter to the US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), the Independent Petroleum Association of America urged the Commission to withdraw its proposed climate disclosure rule, writing that the rule would be “utilized by anti-fossil energy lobbyists to pursue their agendas.”
As reported by the New Republic on June 8th, Solar Energies Industies Association (SEIA) successfully opposed the New York State Build Public Renewables Act, which failed to pass in the state’s legislative session despite strong grassroots support and passage in the state Senate. The bill would have allowed the New York Power Authority, the state’s public utility, to build and own renewable energy projects and set targets for phasing out its fossil fuel power plants. Since at least May, SEIA and utility coalitions have been opposing the bill by emphasizing market competition and local revenue concerns. In a surprise move, the same policymaker who blocked the vote has announced a hearing for the bill later in July, and supporters of the legislation have already been calling for a special session to try to pass the bill again.
On 8th June, Business Roundtable (BRT) tweeted a statement in which it appeared to express support for the energy transition but with major exceptions, stating that America needs further oil and gas leasing on federal lands alongside renewable energy development to bring energy prices down for consumers. In the same thread, BRT tweeted a statement urging policymakers to implement energy efficiency standards
According to a June 8th article by the Colorado Sun, Xcel Energy opposed Colorado House Bill 1218, which would have established electric vehicle infrastructure requirements for new buildings in the state. Although the bill had passed in the state legislature, it was vetoed by Governor Polis.
