What is the Climate Authenticity Meter?

The Climate Authenticity Meter assesses how specific actions by companies and industry groups support or obstruct progress on climate policy.

Investors, employees, customers and other stakeholders are increasingly demanding that companies make climate policy advocacy a top priority. This tool highlights how corporate climate lobbying activities measure up against the AAA Framework for Climate Policy Leadership.

“The most powerful tool that companies have to fight climate change is their political influence.”

Fred Krupp
President of Environmental Defense Fund

Why Policy Leadership Matters

Even in a global pandemic, leading companies are setting net zero emissions goals and investing in low-carbon strategies and innovations. These actions are critical – but not enough to bend the curve on global emissions or protect our communities and the economy from climate risk.

Only well-designed public policy can deliver emissions reductions at the speed and scale needed to limit the worst impacts of climate change. That’s why climate policy advocacy is an essential element of corporate leadership on climate change.

It’s time for companies to walk the talk on climate lobbying, making climate policy advocacy a top priority and driving it from the C-suite.

By embracing the AAA Framework for Climate Policy Leadership, businesses can help get us where we need to go: a more sustainable, equitable and resilient future.
