United Technologies appear to have limited but generally supportive interaction with climate change related regulations and policies. In particular, they appear to strongly support energy efficiency standards, stating on their website that they advocate for energy efficiency legislation generally and advocating in consultation in 2014 for the energy efficiency component of the the EPA Clean Power Plan. They appear despite this, however, to have advocated for weaker energy efficiency standards in Ohio in 2014. United Technologies are also members of the Business Roundtable, the US Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, which appear to be actively opposing climate regulation in the 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. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
