Imperial Oil Limited is either opposed to or carefully noncommittal in regards to key measures designed to fight climate change. Company sources do not ascribe a human cause to climate change, merely acknowledging its occurrence, and support for the Paris climate treaty appears vague. Nor do they offer a transparent summary of the company’s positions on climate change legislation, or of the measures taken by the company through arms-length industrial associations to affect such legislation. The company CEO and President, Rich Kruger, stated in 2016 the need for market-based solutions to Climate Change. Similarly, in communications with shareholders, government bodies and the general public, Imperial Oil has repeatedly stressed the threats posed to business competitiveness by various legislative measures such as the Clean Fuel Standard, whilst maintaining an optimistic outlook about the future role of GHG-based energy sources in the long term energy mix.

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.
