ENERGY LABELLING FRAMEWORK PROPOSAL

ENERGY LABELLING FRAMEWORK PROPOSAL

DOES AND DON’TS FOR SUCCESS AND CREDIBILITY

In the view of the decisive trilogue meeting on the Commission proposal for a new Energy Labelling Framework Regulation to be held on 21 March 2017, the undersigning organisations recall the joint priorities of the affected industry in the interest of preserving the success, credibility and overall workability of this crucial EU policy instrument.

CECED, DIGITALEUROPE, LIGHTINGEUROPE and ORGALIME believe in “Energy Efficiency First” and Consumer Empowerment, including through reliable, simple and easy to understand energy efficiency information. Energy Labelling is one essential pillar in the EU’s energy policy acquis that no doubt delivered convincing results and where Europe translated into clear added value for its citizens as much as for the affected industry and the environment.

The label should continue to promote the progress achieved in energy efficiency and foster sustainable development and cost efficient innovations. These are essential for our industry to continue to develop in the EU and to provide new jobs, as we are doing today.
