Consumers have a choice

Every consumer decision has an impact on the environment – household consumption causes more than 25% of all greenhouse gas emissions in Germany.


But consumers can reduce negative environmental effects through deliberate decisions. For that they need reliable, clear, and easily accessible environmental information.

adelphi is developing a practical approach to enable consumers to make environmentally conscious every-day choices, by providing them specific and reliable information. Information already available at the Federal Ministry of the Environment and the Federal Environment Agency is further supplemented in online and print formats, and will be disseminated to consumers on a pilot basis.
