Walmart appear to have limited engagement with climate change policy and regulations. In 2013 they stated support for President Obama's climate change action plan and policies to support renewable energy production. However, Walmart is also a direct member of the US Chamber of Commerce and has a seat on the executive committee of the Business Roundtable, both of which appear to have taken legal action against the Obama Administration's climate change policies, in addition to opposing climate regulation more generally.

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.
