Abstract Globalization and its sustainability implications create considerable governance challenges. The global and complex stretch of commodity chains imply innovative governance arrangements because the spatially bounded conventional governance management practices do no longer suffice. Environmental networks and flows studied in environmental social sciences provide a basis for connecting material and non-material flows and social actors in their social networks. Innovative environmental governance arrangements building on this framework offer opportunities for dealing with environmental challenges but also creates challenges with regard to its legitimacy. This perspective is applied in the case of the global palm oil network. This results in some potentially useful conclusions for social sciences more generally: the relevance of including material dimensions, bringing in time and space, using a global perspective, and recognising complexity.
