ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision by the Carbon Trust to allow companies that use its carbon label to omit the product's carbon footprint from the label. The new label would indicate that the firm is cooperating with the trust in reducing its footprint. However, an emissions number would still be required to be published online.
