The theory of ecological modernization explains the forces, mechanisms and dynamics of environmental reform in modern society. Its value is illustrated in the ecological restructuring of the chemical industry on a national and global scale. Detailed studies on the paint industry, the plastic and polymer sector and the pesticide industry show how and to what extent the environment is becoming a crucial factor in the redesigning of the institutional order of society.
