Carbon labels

Carbon labeling schemes have been developed in order to show how much carbon dioxide has been emitted during the production, processing and transport of a product. Carbon labeling was first started as an experiment in the UK and the concept is now spreading the world over. Over the year, carbon labeling schemes are due to be launched throughout Europe, Asia and North America. Several carbon labelling schemes, displaying product carbon footprint (PCFs) on product packaging, are already up and running in UK, France, Switzerland, US and Canada, and pilot schemes are underway in Germany, Sweden, Japan, Korea and China. Once carbon labels are adopted universally they would serve as a signal to firms to cut the carbon intensity of their products. More...

  • Some species, such as the bull, dusky, and smooth hammerhead sharks in the North Atlantic, have declined as much as 99% in the past 30 years.
  • The loss of other predators, such as groundfish species, has also altered the composition of the remaining catches.
  • Declines in bottom dwelling fishes in the northwest Atlantic have resulted in increases in catches of mollusks and crustaceans. More...
