Apple has become the first corporation to achieve the top score of an "A+" in our scoring system, due to its recent support of ambitious climate policy.

Research by InfluenceMap reveals the California based tech giant's pledges on the use of renewable energy are backed up by its calls to policy makers to push through ambitious climate change policy and legislation. In the wake of the Paris COP21 agreement of late last year, London based non-profit InfluenceMap forensically analyzed and ranked the largest companies in the world according to whether they are lobbying for or against climate policy - and it tracked and scored links with the trade associations corporations often use to conduct this lobbying.
