Carbon labelling - Making a mark By Stephen Gardner on Apr 29, More companies are putting carbon labels on their products, but do they really make a difference?
Companies are divided over the usefulness of carbon footprint labels for their products. The labels give a measurement of the greenhouse gases emitted during the production and consumption of goods, and are increasingly visible in British shops.
Carbon footprinting has some big-name backing, including Tesco, which now has the easily recognised footprint symbol on a range of its own-brand commodities, including the 30m litres of milk it sells each week. The label has been developed by the Carbon Trust, the government-funded agency tasked with helping develop a low-carbon economy.
But others are less sure. Label confusion The main concerns about carbon labels are that they add to the plethora of labels already confronting consumers, that they may overlap with other green labelling schemes and that they might be little understood.
So far, the footprint label has been applied mainly to grocery items, rather than high-energy-using products such as fridges or washing machines, which might seem more obvious candidates for labelling.
However, appliances must already carry labels rating their energy efficiency, which overlap to a degree with a carbon label. Confusingly, there are two types of carbon label. The first gives a carbon footprint amount such as g in the case of a litre of Tesco milk.
But the second, used on Kingsmill bread, for example, simply states that the brand owner is reducing CO2 in partnership with the Carbon Trust.
The Carbon Trust accepts that the label has some problems. Consumer groups, meanwhile, are reserving judgment. Natalie Hagan of Which?
