Posted by on September 16th, 2010, 10:38 pm

The Georgetown Center presents:

Informing Green Markets

Friday, September 17th

8:30-10:00 AM

Continental breakfast provided

Senior Policy Fellow Tom Lyon will discuss the policy implications of his research in ecolabeling creation, regulation and impacts.

  • How have green markets emerged?  In what direction are they headed?
  • Is product labeling a complement to or a substitute for government regulation?
  • Does the recent proliferation of ecolabels improve the marketplace or merely confuse it?
  • Is competition between ecolabels beneficial?  Will market forces work to winnow down the number of ecolabels and harmonize those that remain?
