Tomorrow (unless I get snowed out), I’m off to Sweden. I’ll be a Guest Researcher at Uppsala University doing a comparative analysis of environmental labeling for food in the United States and Sweden. In addition to the Uppsala University Faculty of Law, I’ll be meeting with faculty at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, the National Food Administration, and people at the largest organic certifies in the country. Public and private Swedish institutions attempting some interesting programs such as incorporating low-carbon standards into organic labeling and environmental standards in creating dietary guidelines. See my first paper on the topic, The Future of Food Eco-Labeling: Organic, Carbon Footprint, and Environmental Life-Cycle Analysis to be published in the Stanford Environmental law Journal.
