Material type: TextTextPublisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2006Description: xiv, 211 p.ISBN: 9780521677721Subject(s): Industrial management - Environmental aspects | Business enterprises - Environmental aspects | Environmental management - Economic aspects | Social responsibility of business | Environmental policy | Green movement | ISO 14001 Standard | Environmental law | VoluntarismDDC classification: 658.4083 Summary: This book offers a theoretical account of voluntary environmental programs by identifying the institutional features that influence conditions under which programs can be effective. By linking program efficacy to club design, it focuses attention on collective action challenges faced by green clubs. Several analytic techniques are used to investigate the adoption and efficacy of ISO 14001, the most widely recognized voluntary environmental program in the world. These analyses show that, while the value of ISO 14001's brand reputation varies across policy and economic contexts, on average ISO 14001 members pollute less and comply better with governmental regulations.
