Siemens appear to have generally positive engagement with climate policy. They reportedly advocated to EU policy makers to increase the EU 2030 energy efficiency target from 30 to 40 percent in 2014. CEO of Siemens France, Christophe de Maistres, also signed 'Business proposals in view of a 2015 international climate change agreement at COP 21 in Paris' in 2015, which calls for an ambitious UN Climate Treaty and the removal of fossil fuel subsidies. Their position on the transition of the energy mix generally appears to be mixed however; although they have made statements expressing support for a transition, media reports suggest they support a continued role for coal in the energy mix. The CEO of Siemens UK sits on the Climate Change Board of the CBI, which appears to be negatively impacting UK climate policy. Siemens are also members of Business Europe and the Business Roundtable, organizations which likewise seem to be actively opposing climate regulation in the EU and US.

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.
