This PhD study investigates how and why companies engage in private governance differently by examining the interplay between context (structure) and choice (agency).  The findings contribute to our understanding of the organization and dimensions of private governance, the logics of different models of private governance and their potential for addressing different types of sustainability challenges, and the powerful role of actors’ agency in shaping the environments in which companies provide governance.  Overall, it contributes new knowledge about why companies understand their political roles and responsibilities differently, and the implications of these differences for the private governance of sustainability issues.
