The gap between existing GHG emissions and the reductions science tells us are necessary to avoid“dangerous climate change”, is increasing. One reason for this could be the existence of inertia, adisinclination to enact radical change, for instance in GHG intense industrial practices. Utilizing aninstitutional perspective, this dissertation addresses GHG reduction by advancing an understanding ofrelated inertia, as well as change, in industrial agri-practice. Two interrelated case studies, linked topolicy making in the Swedish agri-field, are explored and the change ideas within this emergent logicare analysed. The results show that GHG reduction is used in support for convergent changes withinthe industry, for instance to motivate increased efficiency and yields. Hence, inertia is generated by thechange orientation of potential institutional entrepreneurs. Moreover, there are influences, carried bydifferent stakeholders, which further explain this change orientation.
