Climate change: carbon labels and clever menu design can cut the impact of dining – new study

A new study has suggested that carbon labels on menus and clever design can help to cut the impact of dining out.

The study, conducted by the University of Cambridge, looked at the effect of different types of information on the carbon footprint of a meal.

The research found that providing carbon footprint information alongside menu choices can lead to a reduction in the overall carbon footprint of a meal by up to 17 per cent.

In addition, the study found that strategically placing carbon information on menus – such as next to the most carbon-intensive dish – can also lead to a reduction in the carbon footprint of a meal.

The study highlights the potential for carbon labels and clever menu design to help people make more sustainable choices when dining out. It also shows that even small changes can make a big difference when it comes to reducing the impact of our food choices.

So, next time you’re deciding what to order, take a look at the carbon footprint of your meal and see if you can make a more sustainable choice. You might be surprised at how much of a difference it can make.

A new study has revealed that climate change can be cut by clever menu design and carbon labels.

The study, conducted by the University of Oxford, found that if restaurants were to adopt carbon labels it could lead to a significant reduction in the impact of dining.

The research was based on a survey of over 2,000 people in the UK and US.

It found that if carbon labels were used, people would be willing to choose the lower impact option 66% of the time.

The study also found that by designing menus to make the lower impact options more visible, people would be more likely to choose them.

So, by making some simple changes to the way restaurants operate, we can all play a part in reducing the impact of climate change.
