Eco-Standards, Product Labelling and Green Consumerism

Publiceringsår: 2008
Språk: Engelska
Dokumenttyp: Bok
Förlag: Palgrave Macmillan


This book provides the reader with a broad policy analysis of a main set of tools aimed at realising an increasingly appreciated aspect of late modern democracy: green political consumerism. The authors illustrate and explain how green labels and other eco-standards are created and negotiated within a broad continuum between science and politics, by addressing political, regulatory, discursive, and organizational ‘back-stage’ circumstances. How can ecological complexities along with diverging ideologies and knowledge claims be translated to a plain, trustworthy, and categorical label? Is there a general mismatch between the production and the consumption side of green labels? Is it possible to achieve broad public reflection, debate and participation on various environmental themes through green labeling? Does green labeling offer pathways toward a greening and democratization of society? The authors base their analyses on case studies from different sectors within two different policy contexts: Sweden (as part of Europe) and the USA.
