"Check Out" is one of ten IT projects within the field of design and environment that has received funding from VINNOVA.With Check Out a significant step is taken towards a more sustainable food consumption. The aim is to provide a service to help the consumer to take greater environmental responsibility by providing decision support at the time of purchase. The project partners are the Interactive Institute, KF Näthandel (Mataffären.se) - Sweden's largest internet-based supermarket, and Doberman - an award-winning service design agency. The objective of a more sustainable development, both in climate emissions and other environmental issues, means that we as consumers must become aware, take responsibility and as a result also change our everyday habits.The project will start in February and is expected to continue for a year.
