Mitsubishi Corporation appear to have limited engagement with climate policy. They seem to state support for a transition to low GHG emissions technology, although they also appear to advocate for government funding for the development of clean coal technologies and support an increased role for shale gas. This is likely driven by their business interests in coal, renewables and shale gas, depending on context and region, and appears to be pragmatic given the company's portfolio in energy sectors. Their Chairman is a Vice Chairman of the Japan Business Federation, which appears to have negative engagement with climate regulation.

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.
