Human and nonhuman animals in a posthuman reality: Accreditation schemes as voice?

Linda Tallberg, Janne Tienari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter argues that nonhuman animal interests are often silenced in the discourse of sustainable development. This includes the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that retain a limited agenda for global change, ignoring our posthuman reality. Using a posthuman affirmative ethical lens that recognises the interconnectedness of human-nonhuman wellbeing for more positive futures, our chapter explores whether marketplace collaborations between animal protection organisations (seemingly speaking on behalf of animal interests) and companies through accreditation schemes can be considered examples of posthuman affirmative ethics in practice.
