AkzoNobel appear to have relatively limited but very positive engagement with climate policy. Their support appears to largely be communicated in support for initiatives and open letters; they signed 'Let's Partner on Climate Action. Now' and the 'Business proposals in view of a 2015 international climate change agreement at COP 21 in Paris' in 2015 and The Trillion Tonne Communique in 2014, in addition to signing open letters to the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, and Prime Minister, David Cameron, in May and June 2015 respectively. In these communications they advocate support for a strong UN Climate Treaty, energy efficiency standards, measures to support transition of the energy mix and GHG emissions targets. However, among other memberships, AkzoNobel hold a leadership position in CEFIC and are members of the European Roundtable of Industrialists and the German Chemical Industry Association, organizations which appear to be resisting EU climate policy.

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.
