Abstract

VOIVODIC, Mauricio de Almeida  and  BEDUSCHI FILHO, Luiz Carlos. Os desafios de legitimidade em sistemas multissetoriais de governança: uma análise do Forest Stewardship Council. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp. 115-132. ISSN 1414-753X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-753X2011000100007.

Voluntary certification systems are now playing an important role on the sustainability debate. In the absence of governmental authority, those systems build and maintain legitimacy through political support from stakeholders that are engaged in a certain market. This article presents consideration about the means of building and maintaining legitimacy in the FSC forest certification system.

Keywords : forest certification; legitimacy; governance; economic sociology.
