Why self-regulation? With the advent of such concepts as design for the environment, industrial ecology, and the recognized enlightened self-interest that voluntary compliance brings, it is in any company's best interest to avoid fines, liabilities, and bad publicity. Consumer concern and pressure from the marketplace give a competitive advantage to companies that pursue self-regulatory initiatives such as ISO 14001. Bottom line, voluntary compliance saves your organization time and money. Written by a senior environmental manager at a Fortune 500 company, Industry Self-Regulation and Voluntary Environmental Compliance examines environmental regulation through a review of compliance and enforcement theory. Case studies of four leading programs illustrate the use of self-regulation as a compliance tool. The author highlights industry best practices, identifies the key elements of a successful self-regulation program and focuses on the benefits. Today's political environment has shown that to be successful environmental policy must move to the next level, one in which we take advantage of voluntary self-regulation initiatives and focus on environmental improvement. Industry Self-Regulation and Voluntary Environmental Compliance shows you how to create a voluntary self-regulation program that will result in your organization becoming a star company.

As the global demand for natural and organic products continues to grow, making and marketing greener products is becoming an imperative. The old stereotype of green products’ sub-par performance has been shattered as large multinational corporations prove that you can develop and win in the marketplace with a naturals-based product platform. And the pull for sustainably minded products is not limited to consumer marketing—business-to-business marketing of greener products has also increased due to customer demand from all business sectors. The Case for Greener Products Making a compelling business case for why companies must provide greener, more sustainable products, Greener Products: The Making and Marketing of Sustainable Brands shares best practices for the design and marketing of greener products. The book examines ecosystem and regulatory pressures as well as market pressures from customers—consumers, business customers, and government purchasers—who have created a demand on manufacturers to bring more sustainable brands to market. How Are Greener Products Made? Through case studies of green design from companies such as GE (EcomaginationTM), Timberland (Green Index®), Philips, Apple Inc., Seventh Generation, Procter & Gamble, BASF, and others, the author explores initiatives in areas ranging from product design, sustainable sourcing, and packaging to energy efficiency, recycling, and end-of-life management. A contribution from guest author James A. Fava, one of the leading thinkers and practitioners in developing greener products, presents a toolbox of environmental management systems, programs, and tools for the development of greener products. Three Keys to Successful Green Marketing Campaigns Providing the backbone for the author’s analysis of green marketing, a contribution from guest authors Lee Ann Head, Karen Barnes, and Suzanne Shelton of the Shelton Group analyzes market trend data and helps marketers understand their customers and what moves them. The author then looks more closely at drivers for green marketing, outlining three keys for successful green marketing campaigns and using them to evaluate the approaches of several leading companies. He also offers advice on how to avoid "greenwashing," create successful cause-marketing partnerships, and use eco-labels wisely. Throughout the book, the author shares best practices and lessons learned from leaders in the field across various industry sectors. Written by the senior director of product stewardship for Johnson & Johnson, this timely book offers real-world experience, valuable insights, and practical tools for the effective design and marketing of greener products.

This book transcends current debate on government regulation by lucidly outlining how regulations can be a fruitful combination of persuasion and sanctions. The regulation of business by the United States government is often ineffective despite being more adversarial in tone than in other nations. The authors draw on both empirical studies of regulation from around the world and modern game theory to illustrate innovative solutions to this problem. Their ideas include an argument for the empowerment of private and public interest groups in the regulatory process and a provocative discussion of how the government can support and encourage industry self-regulation.

Voluntary Environmental Programs pose a means by which industry, government, and other interested groups can cooperatively agree upon socially acceptable restraints. Rather than relying on complete government control of environmental laws, Voluntary Environmental Programs rely on a voluntary system for businesses. They pose their unique problems predicated on the effectiveness of voluntary self-constraint.
