Ecocem appears to have a limited but positive engagement with various strands of climate change policy. Ecocem has clearly expressed support for the science of climate change and the need to take urgent action to reduce CO2 emissions. Evidence suggests Ecocem supports ambitious reforms of the EU emissions trading system, advocating for a reduction in free credit allocations and expanding the market to include low-carbon businesses in a 2013 consultation with EU policymakers. Ecocem CEO Donal O'Riain in 2016 has also publicly criticized the ‘over-generous free allocation of emission allowances’ in the EU ETS and called for a ‘much higher carbon price’ to promote low-carbon technologies. Ecocem also appears to support ambitious GHG emissions reductions in the EU in both public communications and in consultation with the Irish government.

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.
