September 23, 2015 at 10:32 am Leave a comment

Corporate influence over the climate change debate and policy process has at many levels been cited as a key reason for the relatively slow progress of both the UN COP process and national-level climate legislation. InfluenceMap.org addresses an important piece of this controversial issue.

“We are a neutral and independent UK-based non-profit whose remit is to map, analyze and score the extent to which corporations are influencing climate policy and legislation worldwide. Our scores may also be regarded as a measure of a corporation’s readiness in the case of a shift towards a low carbon regulatory regime. We applied this analysis and scoring to the world’s leading 100 industrial corporations and 30 influential trade associations. Our platform is open and free and is used by investors, engagers, campaigners and the corporate sector itself.”
