Samsung appear to have very low levels of engagement with climate legislation. They have stated some support for renewable energy policy; however, InfluenceMap could find no other evidence of interaction with climate change related regulations and policies. They have not fully disclosed their position on relevant regulations and policies to the CDP. Samsung are, however, direct members of Business Europe, and have indirect membership through subsidiaries of the National Association of Manufacturers and the US Chamber of Commerce; organizations which appear to be opposing climate policy in the US and Europe.

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.
