GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) appear to have limited, if broadly positive interactions with climate change policy. GSK’s public messaging expresses 68070 support for the science of climate change and for the ratification of the Paris Agreement, and GSK was a signatory to the Trillion Tonne Communique, which called for an ambitious deal at COP21. The company also advocated for increased ambition in EU climate policy to reach UN Climate Treaty goals.

Through its partnership with the Corporate Leadership group, GSK has repeatedly advocated for reform to increase the effectiveness of the EU ETS, including supporting the market stability reserve. The company has also supported strong EU 2030 GHG emissions, energy efficiency and renewable energy targets through this partnership. GSK has also support 382889 for an EU net zero target and has supported renewable energy targets for utility companies. In general GSK does not engage with policymakers unilaterally, as disclosed to CDP, nor does it disclose its policies on climate.

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.
