Product Carbon Labeling Takes Shape in South Korea

Product Carbon Labeling Takes Shape in South Korea

The South Korean government has decided that certain products will get labels showing the amount of carbon gas emitted during their production.

The ministry said that it has selected 10 items to test the carbon gas labeling system to begin next month. The system will be officially introduced by January 2009.

The system is designed to label the amount of carbon used in the stages of production, distribution, usage and disposal of the goods.

The products selected include a water purifier made by Woongjin, washing machines made by LG Electronics, CJ's instant pre-cooked microwavable rice, a heater from Kyungdong, and LCD glass made by Samsung Corning Precision Glass.

After completing the product-validation inspection next month, in order to grant final permission, the carbon-labeling information regarding the 10 products is expected to be available by the end of the year, according to the ministry.
