Devon Energy is actively engaged in advocating against effective climate change while promoting a GHG emission intense energy policy. While the company’s public stance on climate change is often non-committal, Devon Energy has worked against effective policy in a number of areas. For example, Devon Energy has consistently supported the maintenance of a high GHG energy mix, including directly engaging with policymakers in an attempt to relax regulations around fracking. The company has also openly challenged and actively lobbied against GHG emissions standards, in particular the EPA's Oil and Natural Gas Sector: Emissions Standards for New, Reconstructed and Modified Sources and the Bureau of Land Management’s Methane and Waste Prevention Rule. The company also fails to disclose its leadership team’s key executive roles on a number of trade associations known to be actively advocating against effective climate and energy policy, including the American Petroleum Institute and the US Chamber of Commerce.

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.
