Corporate Climate Policy Engagement

The Largest Corporates in Australia Compared on Climate Lobbying

The diagram below charts the Total Score and global Engagement Intensity for the 50 companies operating in Australia that are most significant to climate change (please see FAQs for how these companies were chosen). The higher the Total Score, the more the company lobbies to support Paris-Aligned climate policy. The Total Score expresses how supportive or obstructive the company is towards climate policy aligned with the Paris Agreement, incorporating an analysis of its trade association links. The Engagement Intensity (0-100) expresses the intensity of this activity, whether positive or negative. This diagram shows the global Engagement Intensity rather than how companies are lobbying in Australia specifically, which is shown in the second diagram.

InfluenceMap maintains the world’s leading database of corporate and industry association lobbying of climate policy around the globe, covering around 300 companies and 150 industry groups globally. Full details of what our metrics mean are contained within the info icons. A full explanation of our methodology can be found here.
