AT&T appear to have limited negative interaction with climate change policy and regulations. Although they appear to support the need to reduce GHG emissions, they also seem to have sponsored a Dallas Conference that appeared to be disseminating misinformation about climate science in 2014. Their CEO, Randall Stephenson is listed as the chairman of the Business Roundtable, which has actively opposed climate legislation. AT&T are also a direct member of the National Association of Manufacturers, and senior executives have board positions within the US Chamber of Commerce and the American Legislative Exchange Committee (ALEC). All of these organizations appear to be resisting climate change legislation in the United States.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
