Climate change is an omnipresent topic in media (e.g. The Guardian: ‘The climate crisis is already here – but no one’s telling us’), politics (e.g. Donald Trump: ‘The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive’), science (e.g. MA Bradford et al., ‘Managing uncertainty in soil carbon feedbacks to climate change’, Nature Climate Change 6, 2016) and business (e.g. McKinsey: ‘How companies can adapt to climate change: Taking effective action can turn risk into competitive advantage’). Despite this attention, climate change remains one of the heaviest burdens on the international community. Due to the differences between developed and developing countries and particular national interests, achieving a binding and effective international agreement seems close to impossible. That does not however mean that we are in a regulatory deadlock. Where international law stumbles, national law and regulation developed by non-state actors, primarily businesses, take over. As a result, there is a web of national and international, public and private, and mandatory and voluntary regulation tackling the complex issue of climate change.
