Integrated Product Policy: A case study of batteries.

Anna-Lisa Lindén, Annika Carlsson-Kanyama

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The increasing complexity of product chains is an argument for analysing actors and policy instruments throughout the lifecycle of products. Actors are persons or corporations deciding upon the fate of the product. The policy instruments refer to well-known measures like information, economic or administrative measures. The theoretical part of the study discuss governance and the role of policy instruments influencing actors’ decisions and behaviour during the lifecycle of a product. The empirical part of the study analyses the use of policy instruments addressed to actors involved in the lifecycle of batteries and to what extent policy instruments affect actors’ behaviour.
