Evidence on oil spill prevention. Ecology and Society 17 4 : 4. ABSTRACT Major oil spills normally occur from oil pipelines and oil tankers that are under operational control of companies, namely, oil companies and tanker owners. There are two generic responses for changing the behavior of companies with regard to oil spill prevention: mandatory government regulation or voluntary initiatives often pursued under the banner of Corporate Social Responsibility CSR.
Here we investigate to what extent voluntary CSR initiatives can be effective in oil spill prevention. The study finds that oil spill prevention has generally improved over recent decades. Government regulation played a significant part in these improvements whereas it is less clear to what extent CSR played a significant part in these improvements. It is not suggested that CSR should be abandoned; however, new hybrid forms of regulation that combine voluntary and mandatory elements are advocated.
Key words: Corporate Social Responsibility; oil spill prevention; oil spills; petroleum; regulation; voluntary regulation. Address of Correspondent: Jedrzej G.
Corporate Social Responsibility a This article focuses on the extant corporate social responsibility CSR practices in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. The oil and gas sector of Nigeria has been beset by a lot of problems not limited to violence, kidnappings, eco-terrorism, and maladministration amongst others. This article focuses on the Chinese oil firms operating in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria and investigates if they operate on the same basis as the Western firms. CSR is an increasingly important part of the international business environment. Globalisation of world trade and the rise of powerful companies are mainly responsible for the rise of CSR practices.
Our sustainability reporting focuses on environmental, social and governance ESG issues that matter to our business and our stakeholders — investors, customers, host governments, local communities and employees. The content for our data performance table and for our Sustainability Report was identified through prior issue prioritization processes and current year external engagements with stakeholders. We disclose our performance data annually, on topics like our global employee diversity and energy efficiency including air, waste and water metrics. Filter performance data based on the sustainability issues most relevant to you. The guidance represents industry consensus on the most prevalent issues and indicators for the oil and gas sector, and Chevron played a role in its development.
The thesis contributes to the perspective on the role of stakeholder engagement in negotiating corporate social responsibility CSR policies and practices in developing country context. It critically examines the role of societal pressures as drivers of Shell's CSR agenda, and explores the forms of relationships existing between Shell and its stakeholders in Nigeria, as the company implements its CSR programme, both in the light of its strategic business objectives and of its social responsibilities and environmental liabilities. Furthermore, it examines the role of government in the oil MNCs' CSR agenda, and explores the conditions under which the government, in its dual role as business partner and as state authority, promotes CSR policies and practices in Nigeria. Shell's CSR policies and practices in Nigeria were examined under the theoretical lenses of the resource-based view perspective extended to notions of legitimacy and the licence to operate.
