Could we soon be seeing labels on our parcels revealing their carbon footprint? Industry professionals and politicians in Germany are calling for CO2 labels on all parcels, as part of its forthcoming postal law reforms. Where Germany goes, Britain may need to follow, says the UK-based international delivery expert ParcelHero.
ParcelHero’s Head of Consumer Research, David Jinks M.I.L.T., says: ‘Germany is considering radical postal and parcel reforms, in what is expected to be the biggest shake-up of services in 30 years. Its Federal Ministry of Economics is reportedly weighing up legislation to introduce CO2 emissions information. The SPD MP Sebastian Roloff says: "Everything that focuses on more climate protection in parcel delivery is worth considering… There should be more transparency for consumers."
So how do they expect consumers to react? Do they think they will stop ordering items?
