Climate Lobbying Overview: Dangote Cement appears to have limited transparent engagement on climate-related policy, but seems to broadly support IPCC-aligned emissions reductions and the decarbonization of the cement industry.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: Dangote Cement appears to have limited engagement with climate policy in its top-line messaging. In its 2020 Annual Report, published in March 2021, the company acknowledged the impact of GHG emissions on climate change. In its 2021 Annual Report, published in March 2022, the company did not take a clear position on the UNFCCC process. However, in August 2022, in its Q2 Financial Report, Dangote Cement supported the need for action to reduce GHG emissions in line with limiting warming to 1.5°C, according to IPCC science.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: Dangote Cement appears to have limited transparent engagement with climate regulation, and it does not disclose its positions towards, or engagement with, any specific climate policy measures in its corporate reporting. In its most recent 2021 CDP disclosure, Dangote Cement did not respond to the requested disclosure related to engagement with climate change policies.

Positioning on Energy Transition: Between 2019-2021, Dangote Cement did not appear to disclose a detailed position on the energy transition. However, in its 2021 Annual Report, published in March 2022, Dangote Cement supported the decarbonization of the cement industry.

Industry Association Governance: Dangote Cement disclosed a limited list of its memberships to industry associations in its 2021 Sustainability Report. The company did not provide further details of the company's role within each organization's governing bodies or their climate change policy positions. The company has not published a review of alignment with its industry associations. Dangote Cement does not appear to have any memberships to industry associations in InfluenceMap’s database.

InfluenceMap collects and assesses evidence of corporate climate policy engagement on a weekly basis, depending on the availability of information from each specific data source (for more information see our methodology). While this analysis flows through to the company’s scores each week, the summary above is updated periodically. This summary was last updated in Q4 2022.

Additional Note: Dangote Cement is headquartered in Nigeria, where InfluenceMap’s LobbyMap platform can currently only make a provisional assessment of corporate climate policy engagement, due to limited capability to access publicly available data on this issue. As it is possible that InfluenceMap is not yet able to fully capture evidence of Dangote Cement's climate policy engagement activities, these scores should be considered provisional at this time.

Strength of Relationship

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.
