Siemens is positively lobbying on climate change policy. Siemens has communicated support for GHG emission reductions in line with a 2°C global warming target, including global decarbonization by 2100 and has communicated support for the Paris Agreement. In 2017, Siemens wrote a report supporting German 2050 GHG emission reduction targets of 80% and campaigned for a EU GHG emissions standard for capacity market power plants to accelerate a coal phase-out. Siemens has also urged the EU to increase its renewable energy target to 35% and, in 2016, advocated to EU policymakers to introduce regulation encouraging the expansion of offshore wind. Siemens further appears supportive of energy efficiency targets and, in 2016, signed a letter in support of ambitious EU energy efficiency standards for building . In 2017, Siemens also appears to have supported a European carbon price floor. Siemens appears generally supportive of measures to transition the energy mix, including the electrification of transportation and industry, and in 2017 urged the German government to make a coal exit a “climate policy priority”. Despite this, Siemens retains membership of multiple organizations with sharply differing positions on climate change, who are actively opposing climate regulation, for example, the National Mining Association and American Petroleum Institute in the US and BusinessEurope in the EU. However, Siemens is also a member of organizations advocating for ambitious climate legislation, including Advanced Energy Economy and WindEurope.

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. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
