Vandenbergh, Light, and Salzman's Private Environmental Governance (Concepts and Insights Series)
In the last decade, private environmental governance has exploded in response to public demands for corporate action that helps the planet and over frustration with government gridlock. Private environmental governance is now an accepted and powerful environmental policy tool, from corporate sustainability and ESG goals to seafood and forest certification systems, from net zero emissions to land trusts. This book provides the first user-friendly and comprehensive guide to these innovative new approaches that go farther than government regulation. If you want to understand the future of environmental policy in the 21st century, you need to understand the actors, strategies, and challenges central to private environmental governance.
