This chapter sums up the key findings of this study which has been on the factors that may explain the changes and differences in corporate climate strategies adopted by major oil companies: ExxonMobil, the Shell Group and Statoil. It explains that Shell has chosen a proactive strategy, ExxonMobil a reactive one, while the climate strategy adopted by Statoil can be placed in between as intermediate. The analysis reveals that the domestic political context of the companies' home-base countries is more important for explaining differences in corporate climate strategy than are company-specific factors. This chapter also concludes that the analytical framework developed in this study may be applicable also for analysing other issue areas in which large corporations play an important role.
