KURT KIESSLING, Christopher. Business and climate change: Internalization of market mechanisms in Brazilian private sector (2005-2015). Relac. Int. [online]. 2022, vol.95, n.1, pp.79-102. ISSN 2215-4582.

This article addressed the process of building normative fit between the international and domestic arenas on climate change in Brazil, based on the study of the Brazilian private sector's internalization and localization of market mechanisms. The questions that guided this article are: under what conditions did the internalization of the relaxation mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol took place in the Brazilian domestic context? How has this internalization influenced the identities and interests of the business sector in Brazil and contributed to strengthening a domestic climate change governance arena? To achieve this objective, process tracing was used as the primary methodological tool from a constructivist approach to International Relations to understand the dynamics of interaction between the global and the national from the perspective of non-state actors.

Keywords : Brazil; Clean Development Mechanism (CDM); climate change; Kyoto Protocol; private sector; Non-State Actors.
