This Lobbying Update provides details of corporate lobbying on key policies in 2021 thus far, including the Victorian Gas Substitution Roadmap, the inquiry into the prudential regulation of investment in Australia's export industries, the gas-fired recovery plan, the remit expansion to ARENA, and post 2025 market design options. InfluenceMap will continue to provide corporate lobbying updates regularly on this platform.
InfluenceMap has written a series of investor briefings on companies facing climate lobbying resolutions in the 2021 AGM season. These briefings provide an overview of the companies’ direct and indirect corporate climate policy engagement activity, using data from InfluenceMap's online database, to inform investor voting decisions.
InfluenceMap's new research looked at the 50 most economically significant companies in Australia in relation to climate change and their potential to influence climate policy. The research found that none are strategically supporting Australian climate policy in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. In contrast, nearly half of the companies assessed hold policy positions that are misaligned from the goals of the Paris Agreement. Full details are on InfluenceMap's interactive platform.
