Navigating Eco-labels

Navigating Eco-labels

There’s much debate around eco-labelling. Some argue that it’s a critical tool in changing consumer behaviour, while others maintain that far more radical action is needed to drive the changes the food industry urgently needs to make. As such, the body of research determining the effectiveness of eco-labels is growing rapidly.

One key benefit of eco-labelling is the opportunities it presents for companies looking at internal targets. As discussed at Future Food Movement’s panel, ‘Engaging Consumers on Climate Smart Food’, held in September 2022, companies don’t want to display poor or even average scores on their products – particularly in an increasingly competitive market. Eco-labels can therefore encourage companies to do better and to challenge themselves to go further in their sustainability activities, acting as an internal driver for change.

With an explosion of eco-labels on the market in recent years, identifying the right one for your company can be tricky. Future Food Movement’s glossary of eco-labels is designed to support your company as it navigates the diversity of existing standards, to find the framework that best suits your objectives.
