Nut veelvoorkomende ethische labels beperkt

16 december 2016

Nowadays, product labels are often used to enable consumers to choose products that are friendly to the environment and to animals, natural, healthful and socially responsible. However, the usefulness of the commonly used ’endorsement’ labels is limited by offering a single certification grade which is ‘static’, in the sense that certification standards do not reflect the evolution of the market. Also, this type of labels is typically voluntary and defined by stakeholders.
The thesis of Tassos Michalopoulos, successfully defended on 5 December, identifies a number of these limitations and presents an innovative labelling approach designed to address them (Nieuwsbericht WUR, 8 december 2016).
