The report addresses how date labels are determined and applied with focus on reducing food waste in the Nordic countries. This was assessed through a survey and selected interviews with Nordic food manufacturers about their considerations when deciding the date label. Another objective has been to distinguish if there are differences in the way food safety authorities interpret legislation. The results from the study indicate that there are differences between the countries in terms of both the practice of guidelines and the shelf life of food.



Environmental Declarations for Small Consumer Electronics

The Effect of Plastics Recycling

The aim of this study is to investigate how producers of small consumer electronic equipment might be incentivised to improve practice with respect to WEEE plastics recycling, by investigating and highlighting the potential improvements in environmental performance of products resulting from such recycling. Specifically the study addresses how such improvements would manifest themselves in the environmental declarations of various types that are typical of consumer electronic products. Hence, the principal question this study addresses is: “(How) could recycling of WEEE plastics improve the environmental performance of consumer electronics as expressed through typical environmental declarations?”
