Procter & Gamble (P&G) appears to be positively positioned on climate policy, however, maintains links to several trade groups actively opposing ambitious climate policy in the US and Europe. Procter & Gamble has stated support for GHG reductions in line with 2C target and the Paris Agreement, however, appears to have relatively limited direct engagement. P&G have advocated for a national U.S carbon price through the Climate Leadership Council's Carbon Dividends Programme. Additionally, P&G stated support for California's cap-and-trade programme in 2017. However, in 2018, P&G appears to have inadvertently supported opposition to a cap-and-trade policy in Oregon through funding campaign group Priority Oregon. P&G has disclsed supporting Priority Oregon for its work on Corporate Tax. The campaign group has, however, also been attacking the cap and trade bill through TV, radio and digital ads in the state. P&G maintain links to trade groups negatively lobbying climate policies in the U.S and Europe. These include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) – which P&G is on the board on. NAM have lobbied negatively on carbon taxes, emissions trading and GHG emission standards and are thus clearly misaligned from P&G.

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.
