Raising the bar in lobbying transparency

We recognise there is increasing demand from international organisations, governments, investors, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and others for companies and industry associations to be more transparent about their lobbying, especially in relation to climate and the energy transition.

Investor initiatives, such as the Climate Action 100+ Net Zero Company Benchmark and the Global Standard on Responsible Corporate Climate Lobbying, aim to encourage greater transparency around climate-related lobbying by companies and industry associations.

Our main disclosures are summarised in Table 1. We consult key stakeholders, such as representatives from investor groups and NGOs, on some of these disclosures.
