PPL Corporation doe not appear to have lobbied heavily on energy and climate policy. PPL Corporation has not clearly communicated positions on most climate policies in the US, although it does appear to support the electrification of transportation. Evidence suggests its subsidiary, LG&E and KU Energy, has not supported the Clean Power Plan and does not support transitioning towards a low carbon energy sector, alternatively advocating in favor of a sustained role for coal in the energy mix. PPL's CEO, William Spence, is an Edison Electric Institute board member, which has also aggressively opposed specific strands of climate policy in the US such as support for distributer solar power.

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.
