Climate Lobbying Overview:** Incitec Pivot appears to take mostly negative positions in its approach to climate change policy in Australia, with limited engagement since 2018 with key policies. The company appears to support legislation which increases the role of fossil gas in the energy mix in Australia.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: Incitec Pivot appears to broadly support climate change policy in its top-line messaging. The company’s 2021 Climate Change Report stated support for the UN Paris Agreement. In the same report, Incitec Pivot appeared to support carbon pricing, with the condition that this should be global and technology-neutral.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: Incitec Pivot appears to have limited transparent engagement with climate change regulations. In a position paper published in November 2020, the company acknowledged that it is subject to the Australian Safeguard Mechanism, but did not appear to take a position on the policy. The company does not appear to have disclosed on climate change policy engagement via CDP since 2017.

Positioning on Energy Transition: Incitec Pivot appears to take largely negative positions on the energy transition. At the 8th Annual Australian Domestic Gas Outlook in March 2021, the company advocated for policy measures in Australia to increase the role of unabated fossil gas in the energy mix. Furthermore, the Sydney Morning Herald reported in January 2021 that Incitec Pivot had advocated for cheaper gas prices.

Industry Association Governance: Incitec Pivot does not appear to disclose a list of memberships to industry associations. However, the company retains membership of several Australian industry associations engaging negatively on climate change policy, including the Queensland Resources Council. Incitec Pivot does not appear to have published a review of its alignment with industry associations as of August 2022.

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 Q3 2022.

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.
