Carbon-footprint label introduced to guide consumers

on

The first goods bearing the label are expected to appear on shelves next month, says a BBC News report. The label would show how many grammes of carbon dioxide were emitted during production, from sourcing raw materials, to manufacturing and transporting the products to stores.

In order for products to carry the carbon reduction label, companies will have to undertake a comprehensive carbon audit of the supply chains, and commit to further CO2 reductions over a two-year period.

The Carbon Trust is a government-funded company that tries to help businesses and the public sector reduce carbon emissions.
