Nobel Prize winner suggests colour coded labelling scheme to indicate extent to which products come from renewable sources

Posted by gmarkets on 19 September, 2007

The 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus had called for a worldwide lifestyle change, saying global warming was “a matter of life and death” for low-lying nations like his own country, Bangladesh, reported The Courier Mail (14/9/2007, p. 28).

Indicating degree of renewable content: In a keynote speech to a symposium on climate change, Yunus suggested a “traffic rule” under which products bear red, yellow or green markings to indicate the extent to which they come from renewable sources, the newspaper said. Yunus, honoured for his creation of the Grameen Bank which grants microcredit to the poor, said his country was bearing the brunt of climate change.
