The field of sustainability – from corporate sustainability to urban development – has become heavily standardised, through the use of certification schemes, rating tools, reporting guidelines and sustainability frameworks. This family of governance instruments combines guidance on sustainability strategy and/or monitoring with marketable public information, such as certifications, ratings and reports, to incentivise take-up, therefore emphasising standardised, easily verifiable, unambiguous assessment criteria. This research explores an example of a different approach, the One Planet Living framework, more closely aligned with recent academic literature that emphasises systems-based, regenerative or holistic approaches to sustainability. The strengths and limitations of these various approaches, both standardised and ‘regenerative’, are evaluated using the concept of ‘legitimacy’.
