This is especially true for the policy-making arena where it has been widely embraced. Nevertheless, as Davidson and Frickel point out: For every empirical study supportive of the potential for ecological modernization, there are now a number of empirical analyses that raise numerous caveats regarding the propensity for industry actors to undergo the ‘greening’ process of their own accord, particularly when we move beyond the advanced countries of Western Europe.

While not denying the validity of concern over pollution, energy shortages and runaway technology, social constructionists nonetheless insist that the central task ahead for environmental sociologists is not to document these problems but to demonstrate that they are the products of a dynamic social process of definition, negotiation and legitimation. As Yearley (1992: 186) observes, demonstrating that an environmental problem has been socially constructed is not to undermine and debunk it, since ‘both valid and invalid social problem claims have to be constructed’.

As Eckersley (2004: 74) has cautioned, ecological modernisation may well be able to promote greener growth through technological innovation, but eventually it risks being unmasked as ‘an ideology free zone’. The more serious ecological problems persist, the more likely this is to occur. Contemporary theoretical approaches to environmental sociology 29 A major controversy: the realism vs. constructionism debate As Freudenburg (2000: 103) has noted, ‘more than any other subject in the discipline in environmental sociology, social construction[ism] has found fertile ground as well as fierce criticism’.
