CONSULTATIONS: Energy labelling of mobile phones and tablets – informing consumers about environmental impact
(Source: European Commission)
EU energy labels provide a clear and simple indication of the energy efficiency of products at the point of purchase. This makes it easier for consumers to save money on their household energy bills, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions across the EU.
This initiative complements the parallel implementing Regulation on ecodesign. It aims to introduce, when relevant, labelling requirements that support ecodesign by giving consumers better information regarding product sustainability.
