Investors need effective regulations to ensure corporate political engagement is a force for good and aligns with investors’ long-term interests and responsible investment objectives. To help investors navigate the current regulatory landscape around corporate political engagement, the PRI has worked with the OECD to map out hard and soft laws in 17 jurisdictions, examining commonalities and differences and how effectively existing regulations minimise risks of regulatory capture.

It includes high-level trends, examines commonalities and differences, and highlights key areas of unregulated influence.
Corporate Political Engagement regulations and soft law instruments database
The database maps out regulations and soft law instruments that shape corporate political engagement activities across 17 jurisdictions, identifying differences in relation to applicability, exclusions and key definitions. It is structured in four sections: lobbying; political finance; conflicts of interest and pre/post-public employment; shareholder rights.
