As with other Japanese chemicals companies, MCH have little interaction with Japanese or global climate regulations outside of their trade associations. However they do appear to support the need to transition to a low carbon economy. MCH Chairman Yoshimitsu Kobayashi holds key positions in Japan Chemicals Industry Association the International Chemicals trade body and was recently elected Chairman of the Japan Association of Corporate Executives] placing him in a central position to influence global policy affecting the chemicals industry. He recognizes the urgency of the climate issue but does not appear to stress the need for regulations.

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.
