There appears to be little publicly available information on Reliance Industries engagement with climate policy. They reportedly support increased exploitation of shale gas, and in 2015 lobbied the Indian government to increase subsidizes to the coal industry. This appears to be at odds with their apparent concern to transition their own operations. Reliance Industries' ranking is reduced by their lack of transparency around any engagement with climate change policy. It is further reduced through their membership of the American Chemistry Council and the Confederation of Indian Industry, which appear to be negatively engaging with some areas of climate legislation.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

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.
