GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) appear to have positive interactions with climate change policy. They have demonstrated active support for the transition to a low-carbon energy mix, engaging policy makers at both the European and Member State level. They have also advocated for reform to increase the effectiveness of the EU ETS and for the EU 2030 GHG emissions, energy efficiency and renewable energy targets. In addition, they have signed the Trillion Tonne Communique, which calls for an ambitious deal at COP21. GSK is, however, a direct member of the CBI which appears to have mixed support for climate change legislation.

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.
