The Green Code: labeling products relative to the emissions they make.

Category of the action

Reducing consumption

What actions do you propose?

  All consumer goods will have a color-code label from Green (Low) to Red (High): green, blue, yellow, orange, red; according to the impact on emissions they have. The products will pay a special Green fee (tax to the consumers) wich is higher on Red products and lower or none whatsoever on Green products. This will have an effect on consumer behavior, as well on producers.
