Nordic Eco-Entrepreneurship: Global Reputation(s) and the Greening of Capitalism at Different Speeds

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Nordic countries have earned a global reputation for sustainable policies at home, and are actively engaged in multilateral eco-initiatives (Stockholm 1972; Copenhagen 2009). Yet within the Nordic sub-region of Europe there are fundamentally different mixes of state-ecology policy choices and ways in which the greening of capitalism is taking shape. From oil-dependent Norway, where sustainabile THINK cars are under development; to Sweden's dependence on nuclear power and state-led efforts to tame CO2 dependence; and Denmark's transition from coal to windpower. This paper offers a comparative analysis of alternative pathways of eco-entrepreneurship that differentiates the Nordics as a progressively sustainable sub-region and isolates patterns between and among the five welfare states. Inspired by Peter Dauvergne's work, the paper examines the shadow ecology of different policy choices and introduces the concept of "hybrid states" that combine polluting sectors (aluminum, oil, coal) with state-led sustainability initiatives.
