The label will be printed on 350ml cans of Black Label draft beer. According to the company, it will be the first brewer in the world to print the amount of CO2 emission on its products. The Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry is working at hammering out unified rules on how to calculate CO2 emissions and label it. Sapporo plans to begin labeling the amount of CO2 emission on its products immediately after the introduction of the unified rules. You can read coverage in the paper here in Japanese.
