Industry Associations

Use the graph below to explore LobbyMap's data on the links between companies and EU industry associations.

The industry associations are positioned according to their InfluenceMap grades, with those on the left having the lowest grades (signifying opposition to Paris-aligned climate policy) and those on the right having the highest grades (signifying support for Paris-aligned climate policy).

Companies are pulled towards the industry associations they have proven connections to. The stronger the connection (e.g. membership of the industry association's board) the stronger the pull. Hence, a company positioned on the left of the graph indicates it has a greater number of stronger relationships to European industry associations lobbying against Paris-aligned climate policy than groups supporting it.

This is similar to the companies overall 'Relationship Score', which shows the impact of companies' relationships to industry associations globally. The 'Relationship Score' can be seen by hovering over a company.

Explore the links by clicking on the companies and industry associations, or use the drop down menu to select the entity of interest. Industry associations can be viewed according to organization score or sector. Full metrics and online profile for each industry association can be found in the table below.
