Sanofi appear to have low levels of engagement with climate change related regulations and policies. Comments in their 2014 CSR Report emphasize the potential costs to industry of carbon tax, emissions trading and energy efficiency standards. There is little information regarding the company's stance on various other climate change related regulations and policies; for example, when asked for its position by the CDP, Sanofi only disclosed their position on mandatory carbon reporting. Sanofi are also a direct member of CEFIC, who appear to be negatively influencing climate change related regulations and policies within the EU.

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.
