Climate‌ ‌Lobbying‌ ‌Overview:‌ Grupo México appears to have limited transparent engagement on climate policy, although the company has communicated positive top-line positions on the need for climate action under the Paris Agreement and the energy transition.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: Grupo México’s top-line communications on climate change are broadly positive. In its 2020 Sustainability Report, published in August 2021, the company supported the goal of the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C to 2°C. In the same report, Grupo México also supported the attainment of national and international climate goals, including the Paris Agreement.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: Grupo México does not appear to have any transparent public engagement on specific climate-related policies. Its 2020 Sustainability Report states that the company “does not make contributions in any form to political campaigns, political parties, lobbying or trade associations”. CDP responses for Grupo México and its subsidiary, Southern Copper Corporation, are not publicly accessible from 2012 to 2021.

Positioning on Energy Transition: Grupo México appears to have limited engagement on the energy transition beyond top-line messaging. In its 2020 Sustainability Report, published in August 2021, the company supported the transition to a low-carbon economy. In a December 2020 tweet, Grupo México also appeared to support “clean” energies, including solar. Aditionally, in a March 2022 tweet, Grupo Mexico appeared to support the decarbonization of the energy sector, as well as stating support for electrification. Grupo México’s subsidiary, Southern Copper Corporation, also appeared to support the transition to green energy under the US Infrastructure Bill, in a May 2021 presentation accessible on the company’s website.

Industry Association Governance: Grupo México has disclosed a list of industry association memberships in its 2020 Sustainability Report, published in August 2021. However, the report states that the company “does not make any kind of donation or payment ... to organizations whose purpose is to create or influence public policy, legislation and regulations.” Grupo México does not appear to have any memberships to industry associations in InfluenceMap’s database.

Additional Note: Grupo Mexico is headquartered in Mexico, 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 Grupo Mexico'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.
