Telefonica appear to support EU climate change legislation. Through the Grupo Español para el Crecimiento Verde (GECV), a 2013 EU led initiative, they appear to actively support EU 2030 targets on GHG emissions reductions, renewable energy and energy efficiency. Furthermore, through their membership of the GECV, they appear to express support for the necessity of urgent action and a strong binding agreement at COP21. They also appear generally to support transition of the energy mix. However, despite their apparent support for EU climate policy, it seems that Telefonica are members of both Business Europe and the European Roundtable of Industrialists, which appear to be resisting strands of EU 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.
