''Why some countries adopt ecolabeling schemes in their regulatory arsenal and others do not?''
( 2008, Vol. 17 No.3 )
We use data to investigate econometrically the determinants of the adoption of ecolabeling schemes among countries. Our findings show that economic and political freedoms, innovation capacities and experience with other environmental voluntary approaches play a major, sometimes counter-intuitive, role to explain the diffusion of governmental ecolabeling programs.
Keywords: Ecolabels Diffusion Environmental policy.
