Climate Lobbying Overview: United Tractors in 2020-2022 has not clearly disclosed its positioning and engagement with climate regulations, with evidence suggesting mixed, limited engagement.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: United Tractors has limited disclosure in its top-line messaging. While the company’s 2021 Annual Report, released, in 2022, recognizes some of the science of climate change, the company did not communicate a clear position on the Paris Agreement or the need for global emissions reductions in line with IPCC recommendations in the same report.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: In 2020-2022, United Tractors appeared to have had limited direct engagement with climate policy. In its 2019 Annual Report, released in 2020, United Tractors states support for Indonesia’s 2025 renewable energy target of 23% while not disclosing their positions towards, or engagement with, other climate regulations. Furthermore, United Tractors does not provide a dedicated disclosure on its climate positioning or lobbying on its website, nor does it provide] information on its climate policy engagement in its 2021 CDP Disclosure.

Positioning on Energy Transition: United Tractors appears to have a mixed position on the energy transition. In its 2021 Annual Report, released in 2022, United Tractors appeared supportive of a sustained role for coal in the energy mix, noting that "a number of countries are still building new coal-fired steam power plants (PLTU) that require a long-term guarantee of coal supply considering that the minimum age of the PLTU is around 30 years before its efficiency declines". In the company’s 2020 Sustainability Report, United Tractors acknowledged the change in demand for coal but did not make clear its position on transitioning the energy mix. An August 2021 media comment by United Tractors CEO, Frans Kesuma, reported by PWC, appeared to support the continued use of coal in Indonesia while promoting the use of carbon capture technology. However, United Tractors also appears to have been supportive of a policy to reduce coal and oil use in its 2019 Annual Report, released in 2020, and to increase renewables uptake in Indonesia’s energy mix by 2025.

Industry Association Governance: United Tractors does not publicly disclose a list of its memberships to industry associations on its website or to CDP. The company has not published a review of its industry trade associations and InfluenceMap could not find evidence of memberships to trade associations active on climate.

Additional Note: United Tractors is headquartered in Indonesia, 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 United Tractor's climate policy engagement activities, these scores should be considered provisional at this time.

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 Q2 2022.

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.
