BELT project featured infographic on new EU energy labelling

A new energy efficiency labelling system is being introduced in all EU countries. Starting in March 2021, it will progressively be rolled out to 9 product categories.

The product groups of electronic devices with "rescaled" labels include: air conditioners, dishwashers, washing machines; refrigerators, lighting sources, electronic displays, including televisions monitors and digital signage displays, vacuum cleaners and tumble dryers.

Currently, products are labelled on a scale from A+++ (most efficient) to E (least efficient). With the new rules, the existing labels will be rescaled: from A to G.

From November 2020 each product included in the rescaling, must be accompanied by the new labels. With the new rules, it will be mandatory to request the new energy labels in all public tenders. 

ICLEI - Local Governments for sustainability is a partner in the BELT project, supporting public procurers in the uptake of the new energy label. For more information, take a look at the infographic in the resource center or consult the BELT project website.
