Summary, in English

When production is outsourced consumers possibilities to inform themselves about production processes is reduced. Information instruments for consumers, e.g. labelling, are more difficult to apply when materials and chemicals used during production cannot be monitored easily. The globalisation of production and consumption is a challenge for consumers as regards quality of products.



This paper uses three Swedish case studies on batteries, clothing and meat to analyse how globalisation of consumption affects environmental performance, safety of products and effectiveness policy instruments. The empirical materials employed included legislation, other written documents, and interviews with officials in ministries, authorities, production and distribution organisations including importers.
