Oracle appear to support climate policy, but this is primarily through their involvement with the Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2). This community of business leaders calls for more ambitious renewable energy legislation, energy efficiency targets and GHG reduction goals. At the corporate level, Oracle, appear to provide no information regarding their positions on climate policy. There also appears to be a level of conflicting evidence as to Oracle's engagement with trade associations, as well as a lack of full disclosure of their funding to research organizations. Close links to Business Europe, Business Roundtable, and the US Chamber of Commerce, further reduce Oracle's overall score.

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.
