Deutsche Post generally appears to be positively engaged with climate change regulation. They appear to advocate support for GHG emissions reduction, suggesting governments adopt science-based GHG emission targets and support a strong binding agreement at COP21 in an open letter in 2015. The company also appears to support the transition towards a low-carbon transport sector. Through its CDP climate change disclosure, Deutsche Post has stated support for European Emissions Trading System (EU-ETS), although it appears not to have supported market intervention to increase the effectiveness of the scheme in 2013. Although Deutsche Post appears not to support the EU Energy Efficiency Directive in its current form, in 2016 the company has signed a joint letter from industry to EU policy makers calling for energy efficiency standards for new trucks. Deutsche Post has a particularly strong connection to the US Chamber of Commerce, which appears to be negatively influencing climate change legislation.

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.
