Competition in Environmental Labeling
AbstractThis paper analyzes environmental labeling strategies in a duopoly market. We consider a three-stage game where firms successively choose their production technology, label signal and price. The willingness to pay for the environmental quality is explained by an altruistic parameter as consumers are volontarily contributing to the preservation of the environment, which is a public good.
