Tesco and carbon labelling: response

In the FCRN newsletter of 9 February 2012 we reported on Tesco’s announcement, as covered by the Guardian and others, that it would no longer be putting carbon labels on its products.  However, since then Tesco has published a letter in the Grocer, clarifying its position.

In summary, while it will no longer be providing consumer-facing labels, Tesco will be continuing with its carbon footprinting activities and is still committed to to reducing the embedded carbon emissions in the products it sells by 30% by 2020, and to finding ways to help customers reduce their carbon footprints by 50% by 2020.
