“This rich volume of sector studies demonstrates how the Indian business community is using the power of sustainability standards to go beyond CSR. As an academic volume, I appreciate the fact that this book does not shy away from exploring some of the complex issues surrounding global value chains, the quest for sustainability and India’s role in shaping this agenda. A welcome and timely addition to the growing body of literature on the role of market-based approaches to sustainable development.” —Karin Kreider, Executive Director, ISEAL Alliance On the backdrop of the institutionalisation of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability, and the emergence of multi-stakeholder-driven voluntary regulation, this timely collection places special emphasis on India and explores its international voluntary sustainability standards. The authors analyse the adoption and implementation of voluntary governance initiatives across a range of industries, offering insightful sectoral discussion and evaluation of voluntary sustainability standards as forms of transnational private regulation. This book will be of interest to anyone researching CSR, sustainability and supply chain management in emerging markets.
