My Thesis' Abstract

This PhD project investigated the prospects and different visions for an effective implementation of a sustainability ‘meta label' to support ‘more' sustainable consumption and production. Combining theoretical arguments from interdisciplinary informed ideational institutionalism with concepts of legitimacy from the governance and organisational studies literature, the project first investigated how the construction of legitimacy has shaped the institutionalisation of four existing labelling schemes: EU eco-, EU energy-, Fair Trade and Marine Stewardship Council label. The identified causal relations were then used to examine the prospects for the institutionalisation of a legitimised sustainability meta label.
