This chapter outlines the analytical framework of the empirical analysis of the climate change strategies of ExxonMobil, Shell and Statoil. It investigates the factors that determine the strategies chosen by the oil industry to meet climate-change challenges and evaluates the impact of three main factors on the companies' choices. These factors include company-specific features, the political context of corporate activity at the domestic level, and the international institutional context in which multinational companies operate.

Keywords:   climate change strategies, ExxonMobil, Shell, Statoil, company-specific features, corporate activity, political context, international institutional context
