This study reviews food carbon labeling when put in place with clear objectives to address climate change. This study examines whether food carbon labels, as climate mitigation tools, are put in place in a sustainable way, by identifying their impacts on the three dimensions of sustainable development: 1) economic 2) social and 3) environmental. This case study examines both domestic, as well as international (in other jurisdictions) impacts of food labeling, and then focuses on the measures that are put in place to mitigate the (potential) negative impacts identified.
