Show Summary Details


This chapter analyses the accuracy of the Domestic Politics (DP) model in accounting for the differences in climate change strategies adopted by the oil companies in this study. It explains that the DP model highlights the extent of social demand for environmental quality, the type of climate policy supplied by the government, and the way in which political institutions link supply and demand, that is, the relationship between state and industry. This chapter analyses the relevant conditions in the Netherlands, Norway, and the U.S., the home-base countries for Shell, Statoil and ExxonMobil, respectively.
