Industry Associations

The graph below shows the relationships between companies and their Australian industry associations.

The industry associations are positioned according to their InfluenceMap grades, with those on the left having the lowest grades (signifying opposition to Paris-aligned climate policy) and those on the right having the highest grades (signifying support for Paris-aligned climate policy).

Connected to the industry associations are the companies. Companies are pulled towards the trade associations they have proven connections to. The stronger the connection to the association is, the stronger the pull. For example, a company which sits on an industry association's board would have a strong connection, and therefore a shorter line than if the connection had been a less significant one. Hence, the further to the left a company sits on the graph, the more negative its overall connection to Australian industry associations. This is similar to the 'Relationship Score', which shows the impact of companies' relationships to trade associations globally. The 'Relationship Score' can be seen by hovering over a company.
