Airbus' engagement with climate change legislation appears to be mixed. They signed the Business proposals in view of a 2015 international climate change agreement at COP 21 in 2015, supporting the need for action on climate change, an ambitious UN treaty and removal fossil fuel subsidies. However, they also appear to have taken credit for the EU backing away from including the aviation sector in the ETS. In 2013 they also appear to have opposed the now repealed Australian carbon tax. They have a leadership position within the French Federation of Industry (MEDEF), which appears to have opposed multiple strands of climate change policy and regulations in France.

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.
