Overview

This timely book addresses the political economy of climate change. The author questions the disconnect between the current nation-state based negotiation framework and the forces in the global economy that: are driven by neo-liberal policies, organized around transnational corporations or international production networks and, refute effective climate change policy. With the emergence on the world economic and carbon scene of China and India and several other developing economies, the debate on "who is to blame, and who is to pay" can no longer be ignored. Carefully researched and sourced from original work and case studies, The Corporate Greenhouse argues that failing to account in climate change treaties for the activities of transnational corporations will hinder solutions to global climate change.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Schreuder authoritatively surveys the political and economic hurdles facing efforts to reduce carbon emissions, establish carbon-trading schemes, and combat slow global warming-with special emphasis on the roles and responsibilities of transnational corporations. I recommend it highly: it is vital, insightful reading for anyone interested in carbon trading, climate mitigation, international relations, and the pervasive role of mega-corporations in our world today.' - William F. Laurance, Senior Research Scientist, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Balboa, Panama

'What a timely book. By situating the debate on climate negotiations in the broader context of globalisation, liberalisation and intensified competition, the text highlights the ambiguous roles that corporations are playing in shaping the prospects for and the impacts of climate change agreements. This book highlights how, with the right sort of global deal and appropriate frameworks for global governance, corporations could play a much more active role in the search for solutions.' - Prof Andy Gouldson, Co-Director - Sustainability Research Institute Director - ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy School of Earth and Environment University of Leeds

'Attempts to slow the relentless rise in greenhouse gas emissions, so bravely begun in 1992, have almost completely failed, and the world now faces an urgent climate crisis. In The Corporate Greenhouse, Yda Schreuder makes a closely argued case that a primary reason for this failure is that policy makers have failed to address fully the real conditions of the global economy, where power has increasingly been in the hands of transnational corporations rather than governments and the peoples they are supposed to represent. In the wake of the global financial crisis and in the early days of a new U.S. administration, this book offers valuable insights into what has gone wrong with climate policy in the past, and where solutions may lie.' - Caspar Henderson
