Denmark Proposes Labeling Food According to Its Effect on Climate Change

Denmark officials have proposed food labeling to grade a product’s impact on the environment. This new policy will likely be included in a package devoted to the climate and climate change, slated to be presented by the Danish government this week.

“My impression is that there is a demand for knowledge about how individual consumers can contribute to improving world climate,” Minister for the Environment Lars Christian Lilleholt tells The Local.

“We want to give consumers the means to assess in supermarkets the environmental impact of products.”

The proposal will include a collaboration with supermarkets to make it easier for consumers to make choices that reduce their impact on climate change.

“I will enter into dialogue with the retail sector, butchers and other food producers to open a discussion about how we can implement this in a way that would enable the climate labelling to work,” Lilleholt said.
