DuPont appear to have mixed positions on climate change policy and regulations. In 2014 they advocated for policy makers to support energy efficiency standards, renewable energy legislation and GHG emissions standards. However in communications with investors, they also appear to not be supporting the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, favoring instead existing market-based approaches to GHG emissions regulation. Also in 2014, they stated support for transiting towards a low-carbon carbon economy without exception, in addition to directly advocating to EU policymakers to facilitate this transition. Among numerous other trade association memberships, DuPont have senior executives on the boards of CEFIC and the American Chemistry Council, both of which appear to have opposed strands of climate regulation.

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.
