Hewlett Packard appear to demonstrate little direct engagement with climate change related regulations and policies. Through the Trillion Ton Communique, they do appear to demonstrate clear support for the transition toward low-carbon energy mix, IPCC demanded action and the UN Climate Treaty. A position paper from 2013 appears to suggest, however, that the company also supports weaker US GHG emissions targets. In addition, Hewlett Packard are a direct member of the US Chamber of Commerce, which appears to be having a negative impact on climate policy.

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.
