Climate Change and the Oil Industry Common Problem, Varying Strategies Synopsis

This volume considers how multinational corporations can be part of the solution to environmental problems, focusing on the climate strategies of ExxonMobil, Shell, and Statoil as case studies. The analysis generates policy-relevant knowledge about whether and how corporate resistance to climate policy can be overcome. The analytical approach developed by the authors is also applicable to other areas of environmental degradation where multinational corporations play a central role. Invaluable to students, researchers and practitioners interested in national and international environmental politics, and business environmental management. An important and timely volume given the challenges facing environmentalists and policy-makers following the breakdown of the Kyoto protocol. -- .
