We have expanded the list of climate policies we assess company engagement with to incorporate land-use related policy, referring to legislative or regulatory measures to enhance and protect ecosystems and land where carbon is being stored. Assessments under this category are currently underweighted in terms of their contribution to the overall company metrics. This weighting will be progressively increased over the next 6 months.
We adjusted the terminology used to describe the queries running down the left-hand side of our scoring matrix and added additional explanatory text to the info-boxes. This has no impact on the scores and methodology. It has been done following user feedback to improve clarity.
Climate Lobbying Overview: The Mining Association of Mexico (CAMIMEX) has no transparent engagement with specific climate-related regulations. The association appears to broadly support the proliferation of ‘clean’ energy, however it is unclear if this excludes the use of fossil fuels.
Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: CAMIMEX’s top-line communications on climate change are broadly positive, although very limited. In a magazine published by CAMIMEX in March 2021, the organization recognized the damaging environmental impacts of climate change. CAMIMEX does not appear to explicitly support the Paris Agreement, emissions reductions in line with IPCC guidelines, or the need for government regulation to respond to climate change.
Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: CAMIMEX does not appear to have any transparent public engagement on specific climate-related policies.
Positioning on Energy Transition: CAMIMEX appears to have limited engagement on the energy transition. In a Tweet from the organization in February 2022, and according to an article from Mining World published in February 2022 also, CAMIMEX CEO Jaime Gutiérrez Núñez appeared to support ‘clean energy’, however it is unclear if this support excluded fossil fuel based energy sources. CAMIMEX did appear to support the energy transition in a roundtable with Mexican policymakers in October 2022, insofar as it supported the financing of municipalities where mining for energy transition minerals such as lithium is taking place.
Note: CAMIMEX 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 CAMIMEX's climate policy engagement activities, these scores should be considered provisional at this time.
