DISCUSSION OUTLINE:


The Role of Self-Regulation in Industry

 

Policy innovation is not restricted to governments. Industry has, on numerous occasions, taken the lead on managing practices within a sector. Perhaps the best known example is Responsible Care, a program developed in Canada over 25 years ago by the chemical sector, now a global standard for the sector. Discussion of Industry led initiatives will include Toward Sustainable Mining (TSM) and a more recent program for energy pipelines being developed by the Canadian Energy Pipelines Association. The value of these programs compared to other forms of policy will be discussed as well as future applications.

 

Some of the questions for our discussion include:

 

  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of self-regulation?
  • Why do some sectors adopt self-regulation and others don't?
  • How has the emphasis of these programs changed over time?
  • What challenges remain and where might future efforts go?
  • What are the longer term trends?
