This chapter introduces this subject, focusing on four key themes: (1) the institutional characteristics of the business corporation and its marketplace that influence the environmental performance of the private sector; (2) the CSR movement, which responds to criticisms of the environmental performance of business; (3) corporate accountability and liability under international environmental law; and (4) governance regimes fostering collaborative, multi-stakeholder processes that involve the private sector. This chapter should be read in conjunction with several others in this handbook that touch directly or indirectly on the business sector, notably chapters on investment law 3 and non-state actors.
