Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: Dangote Cement appears to have limited top-line messaging on climate change. In its 2020 Annual Report, published in March 2021, the company acknowledged the impact of GHG emissions on climate change. However, the company does not appear to have disclosed a position on the need for climate-related policy, the UN Paris Agreement, nor the need for action to reduce GHG emissions in line with IPCC science.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: Dangote Cement appears to have limited transparent engagement with climate regulation, not appearing to disclose its positions towards, or engagement with, any specific climate policy measures. In its most recent 2021 CDP disclosure, Dangote Cement has not answered any questions related to engagement with climate change policies.

Positioning on Energy Transition: From 2019-2021, Dangote Cement does not appear to have a detailed position on the energy transition. InfluenceMap did not find evidence of Dangote Cements position on, or engagement with, policy related to the transition of the energy mix.

Industry Association Governance: Dangote Cement has disclosed a limited list of its memberships to industry associations. In its 2021 CDP response, Dangote Cement has only listed its membership to the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA). However, the company has not provided 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.

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.
