Bayer appear to exhibit misalignment on various areas of climate change policy. Although they express a clear position on climate change science they appear to support climate change denial in media sources. They seem to have stated in consultation in 2014 that they opposed EU energy efficiency and renewable energy targets, preferring a single GHG emissions target, however their support for a single target appeared to be conditional on equally weighted targets for competitiveness and growth. Moreover, despite statements supporting the transition of the energy mix, Bayer appear not to have supported the German Energiewende, and to have opposed policies to phase out coal in Germany, while expressing support for unconventional energy sources. Bayer's CEO is President of the VCI and a senior executive holds a leadership position in CEFIC; both organizations that appear to be opposing climate policy in Europe.

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.
