Ingersoll Rand (IR) appears to have a low level of engagement in climate-related policy discussions excepting its active lobbying in favour of energy efficiency legislation and general support for adherence to the principles of the Paris Agreement. The IR website discusses the company's sustainable production at length but doesn't comment on other specific legislation. On energy efficiency, IR has actively supported specific measures such as a strong implementation of the EU Energy Performance of Building Directive. The IR website has a section that lists its "memberships and partnerships" but the page provides only the names of its associated organisations with no further information. Ingersoll Rand has public stances on only two climate-related policies, vaguely advocating for greenhouse gas reductions while also pursuing a far more active campaign to implement energy efficiency standards. The latter can be seen in open letters, lobbying and its own website. In its response to the CDP survey, IR declined to share its stance on any climate change policy and its list of relevant trade associations had significant omissions: the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) was not present on the list despite IR's CEO's position as chair of its Board of Directors. This is a serious exclusion given the contrast between the two firmly climate-positive associations that IR provided and NAM, an organisation notable for hostility to progressive climate change legislation including energy efficiency standards.

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.
