Climate Lobbying Overview: Thermo Fisher Scientific (Thermo Fisher) appears to have very limited engagement with climate change policy with limited disclosures on its positions.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: In Thermo Fisher’s 2020 CSR Report, CEO Marc Casper expressed concern around GHG emission reduction within the company’s own operations, but did not comment on the need for climate policy in general. In the same report, the company stated support for the UN Paris Agreement and the goal to keep global warming below 2°C.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: InfluenceMap was unable to find statements by Thermo Fisher Scientific on climate change policies. While the company has set GHG emissions targets for its own operations, it remains unclear if it supports GHG emissions related policies.

Positioning on Energy Transition: Thermo Fisher’s stance on the energy transition remains largely unclear. On its corporate website, accessed in August 2021, the company acknowledged the finite nature of fossil fuels and subsequent need for biofuels, but no further reference to the energy transition or the energy mix could be found.

Industry Association Governance: Thermo Fisher publicly disclosed a list of its memberships to industry associations in its 2020 Political Contributions Report on its website without disclosing further details on the company's role within each organization or the groups’ climate policy positions.

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.
