Labels that declare a product's carbon footprint are beginning to appear on food and beverage packaging and Logitech is implementing carbon labels for its tech products. Over the course of eight years, Logitech has been auditing its environmental practices with the aid of Natural Capital Partners, IFU and DERKA. During this journey, Logitech began implementing recycled plastic in 25% of its mice and is planning to move to 100% recycled plastic in all of its products going forward.
The carbon labels can be identified by the large letter "C" and a number that shares the kilograms of carbon put out by the product—currently, Logitech’s entire gaming line is carbon-neutral. As Prakash Arunkundrum, head of sustainability and operations at Logitech, says: "If you bought a bag of chips and looked at the nutritional label, you see 130 calories, and you know what it means. We want to be at the same place with carbon."
