This chapter evaluates and compares the strategies adopted by ExxonMobil, the Shell Group and Statoil on the climate change issue. It focuses on a key set of four indicators which include the companies' acknowledgement of the prospective problem of a human-induced climate change, their position with regard to the Kyoto Protocol, and self-imposed targets and measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their own operations. This chapter highlights the differences among the companies and analyses their general environmental policy.

Keywords:   climate change, ExxonMobil, the Shell Group, Statoil, Kyoto Protocol, GHG emissions, environmental policy
