Hans Rawhouser (Management, Entrepreneurship and Technology), with Michael Cummings (University of Arkansas) and Alfred Marcus (University of Minnesota) recently published “Sustainability Standards and Stakeholder Engagement: Lessons from Carbon Markets.” The paper appears in the September issue of Organization & Environment, the top journal dealing with sustainable development of organizations. The paper uses differences in stakeholder engagement patterns and characteristics of standards developed in two carbon markets (the Climate Action Reserve and the U.N.’s Clean Development Mechanism) to explore tradeoffs between top-down and bottom-up standard development processes. The paper supplements Rawhouser’s other research focused on cutting-edge approaches for how organizations can measure and increase social and environmental impact.
