The use of voluntary approaches has emerged in the 1990s as the most rapidly growing — in terms of number and scope — policy instrument for environmental management and policy in Europe. Despite their increasing implementation, however, voluntary approaches have received relatively little critical discussion amongst academics and policy-makers. The Concerted Action on Voluntary Approaches (CAVA) network of researchers organised a series of workshops on various facets of voluntary approaches. The papers presented at these workshops provide the latest thinking and research findings in the theory and practice of voluntary approaches in environmental management. The materials included in this policy brief represent a synthesis of these and other findings that will provide some insights as to how to design and implement voluntary approaches. The information we have distilled here is directed at three audiences. The first are those in government departments and agencies responsible for policy design and implementation. The second are those in industry who are considering the use of voluntary approaches. The third are non-governmental organisations and the general public. For all three groups, research findings have much to offer in terms of fulfilling the potential of this instrument.
