Philips (Koninklijke Philips NV) is lobbying European climate policy with highly positive support. Philips advocates for urgent action on climate change, supporting both a 2°C limit for global warming and the Paris Agreement. Philips in 2016-18 has consistently and vocally advocated for ambitious energy efficiency standards and targets. Philips has directly advocated to policymakers to support an ambitious 40% energy efficiency target in the EU, also signing a joint letter in 2016 urging the EU to adopt improved efficiency legislation for buildings. In 2017 Philips further signed a letter urging the EU to adopt a 35% renewable energy target. Evidence suggests Philips is also supportive of GHG emissions standards and targets, advocating in 2016 for the EU to adopt emissions standards for trucks by 2020. Communications from Philips in 2016-18 also indicate support for a low carbon transition and a phase-out of fossil fuel subsidies. Philips’ CEO, Frans Van Houten, is a member of the European Roundtable of Industrialists, who are negatively lobbying EU climate and energy 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. 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.
