    Abstrakt

    We examine ecolabels’ environmental effectiveness in the context of the international shipping industry. Shipping faces major environmental challenges, and has recently witnessed the introduction of several ecolabels aiming for better environmental outcomes. Extending the ecolabel literature into a mature service industry with global operations, we show that concerns about ecolabel environmental effectiveness also have relevance here. Shipping ecolabels fall short of best practices for design and governance. Our study has policy implications for the achievement of better environmental outcomes in the shipping industry.
