Resumen

La Declaración de Rio sobre el Medio Ambiente y el Desarrollo de las Naciones Unidas, hizo un reconocimiento global de la necesidad de la producción y consumo sostenibles, desde entonces los Estándares de Sostenibilidad han crecido tanto en número como en importancia en la comercialización de diferentes productos, en especial del sector agroalimentario. El objetivo de este artículo es identificar las líneas de estudio clave en la literatura académica sobre Estándares de Sostenibilidad en los agronegocios. Para la revisión, se utilizó una técnica bibliométrica en la cual se reconocen las conexiones entre artículos publicados las en la base de datos ISI-Web of Science. Este análisis arrojó como resultado tres líneas de estudio en la literatura: gobernanza, cadena de valor y medición del impacto de los estándares sobre productos agroalimentarios como café, banano, aceite de palma y cacao. Este artículo identifica los autores que han abordado los Estándares de Sostenibilidad en los agronegocios e identifica futuras líneas de investigación orientadas hacia la medición del impacto y contribución al logro de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible; la gobernanza privada y aplicación en los diferentes eslabones de la cadena de valor; y, el desarrollo de estándares por parte actores particulares como retailers.

Palabras clave

estándares de sostenibilidad; gobernanza; cadena de valor global; agronegocios. sustainability standards; private governance; global value chain; agribusiness.
