A PhD project at the University of Manchester is investigating the effectiveness of sustainability related product labelling and the prospects for an effective implementation of an overarching scheme which communicates the sustainability of products to consumers in a simplified form.

The research is based on interviews with small and large scale retailers, manufacturers, primary producers and civil societal organisations who have been involved in either the implementation of an overarching sustainability information scheme or the EU eco-, EU energy, Fair Trade or Marine Stewardship Council label. If you would be willing to support this research through the participation in an interview please visit http://www.tyndall.ac.uk/sustainability-meta-labelling-call-for-participation for more information.
