Eco-design and Energy Labelling

Eco-design and energy labelling are considered effective tools to improving the energy efficiency of products in the EU. To date over 40 product groups are included within the eco-design and labelling regulations and are responsible for around 40% of all EU greenhouse gas emissions.

This paper provides details of the Eco-design directive and Energy Labelling directive and their applicability to refrigerated products. Throughout the paper, examples are drawn from the energy labelling of domestic, professional and commercial refrigerated products.
