Show Summary Details


This chapter evaluates the effectiveness of the International Regime (IR) model in accounting for the differences in the climate change strategies adopted by the oil companies in this study. It explains that this model is concerned with corporate alliances across states and how such alliances relate to international regimes over time. This chapter examines the extent to which the international climate regime can explain the strategies chosen by the oil industry focusing on three causal pathways: knowledge, pressure and opportunities.

Keywords: IR model; climate change strategies; corporate alliances; international climate; regimes; knowledge; pressure; opportunities
