Denmark mulls labelling food based on its environmental impact

Denmark wants to reduce pollution caused by the food industry in order to have zero emissions by year 2050.

The global livestock industry produces more greenhouse gases than cars, planes, trains and ships combined. But that doesn’t reflect anywhere on meat products.

Denmark wants to change the practice. The Scandinavian country is considering laws which would require food manufacturers and supermarkets to label products with a rating of their impact on the environment.
