Industry Associations

Industry Association Metrics and Profiles


InfluenceMap also tracks the advocacy of key industry associations that represent the financial institutions on sustainable finance policy. Previous research by InfluenceMap has demonstrated the critical contribution of advocacy via third-party groups in policy engagement strategies, notably in allowing companies to pool resources and take advantage of well-resourced lobbying operations as well as providing public distance between companies and their most regressive policy positions.

In general, the financial industry associations analyzed have engaged more intensely and negatively than the financial institutions themselves; often stating broad support for sustainable finance policies whilst lobbying to weaken the detail of key regulatory strands

Below is a ranking table with the industry associations included in this research. A summary profile and full access to the data underlying the assessments can be accessed via the links in the table.
