Sapporo Plans Carbon Labels For Beer

sapporo.jpgStarting next year, Sapporo Breweries will put a carbon label on cans of its Black Label draft beer stating how much carbon dioxide is emitted per can during the entire production and disposal process, the Daily Yomiuri reports.

Japan’s Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry is working on creating rules on how companies can calculate CO2 emissions and label it. The rules are expected to be in place by February or March next year and Sapporo says it will start labeling its beer soon after.

In the UK, a draft product carbon footprinting standard is currently being developed by Carbon Trust in partnership with Defra and BSI British Standards.
