Karlsruhe, Germany

EnBW is actively and positively lobbying a number of climate and energy policies. EnBW supports the Paris Agreement and signed a 2015 initiative supporting emissions targets and an ‘ambitious regulatory framework’ in Germany and in the EU, in line with its ambition. EnBW supports the EU ETS, and has called for an increase in the carbon price through reforms such as the early introduction of the Market Stability Reserve and other measures. In 2016 EnBW signed an open letter to the European Parliament advocating ambitious EU ETS reform to increase the carbon price to align with Paris Agreement objectives. EnBW has called on EU policymakers in 2014 to increase EU 2030 renewables targets to more than 30%. In further EU consultation in 2015 and 2016, EnBW has continued to advocate support for renewable energy targets, including binding national targets, and has opposed an EU ruling prohibiting support for renewable energies in case of negative market prices. Additionally, EnBW has signed a 2016 open letter advocating to increase the EU 2030 energy efficiency targets from 27% to 40%. EnBW generally seems to support a low-carbon energy transition, encouraging governments to support the electrification of transport and the 'gradual decarbonization of the global economy'.

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.
