Colgate-Palmolive appears to have very limited but positive engagement with climate change policy. In the USA, Colgate-Palmolive appears to have supported GHG targets and the transition of the United States’ energy mix through the Clean Power Plan by signing the Business Backs Low Carbon USA statement in 2016. Colgate-Palmolive appears to support a UN Treaty on climate change, having signed the Business Backs Low Carbon open letter to the US President in support of US participation in the Paris Agreement in December 2015. However, it is unclear from their corporate website whether or not they support the IPCC’s call for drastic action on climate change. Furthermore, Colgate-Palmolive do not disclose any specific positions on many strands of climate policy such as carbon taxes or emissions trading, nor do they disclose a list of climate related trade associations of which they are members.

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.
