Module 8 assesses companies’ political influence from the perspective of three indicators:
1. Does the company have a policy on what action to take when industry organisations to which it belongs are found to be opposing climate-friendly policies?
2. Does it engage with any climate-negative trade associations through board membership or funding?
3. Does it publicly support or obstruct climate-friendly policies?
Each indicator is equally weighted in this module, which together accounts for 1.2 out of the overall performance assessment score of 20.
