New research: Labeling carbon footprint affects the choices of mass catering customers – and the labeling method matters, too!

This effect was strongest when the information was color-coded in a traffic-light scheme and translated into environmental costs in euros. According to one of the researchers, these findings could also be relevant for Finland, where mass catering is particularly popular.
