This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the possible role of multinational corporations, particularly those in the oil industry, in addressing climate change. This volume focuses on ExxonMobil, Shell and Statoil, which adopted different corporate climate strategies. This chapter suggests that the analysis of these three oil companies can provide better understanding driving forces behind corporate climate strategy choice and the influence of political context in the companies' home-base countries.

Keywords:   climate change, multinational corporations, oil industry, ExxonMobil, Shell, Statoil, political context
