Reliable categories of environmental policies
This paper synthesises and tests a categorisation of environmental policies. The literature review presented reveals that a number of different typologies have been used in the past, creating the potential for conceptual confusion. Based on the review and unstructured interviews with steel industry experts, we propose a three-category typology. A 41-item instrument was created to test the typology. Results from empirical testing in the steel industry indicate that the measures created for this typology are reliable.
