ENERGY STAR® in your business
ENERGY STAR is the global mark of energy efficiency, awarded to the top 25% most energy efficient appliances, home electronics and office equipment. It is an independent endorsement that helps you choose and easily identify the most energy efficient products for your business.
ENERGY STAR benefits
By purchasing ENERGY STAR products your business can:
- Reduce operating costs
- Actively demonstrate your commitment to reducing energy use and protecting the environment.
So making ENERGY STAR part of your company's procurement policy makes good economic and environmental sense.
Currently in New Zealand you'll find the ENERGY STAR mark on 15 different product categories including:
- Office equipment including computers, computer monitors and laptops
- Imaging equipment including fax machines, scanners, printers, copiers
- Home electronics
- Heat pumps
As appliances and office equipment need replacing make sure you choose energy efficient replacements.
When it comes to business equipment, products such as copiers, printers, scanners and fax machines that have earned the ENERGY STAR mark can save you around 30% on electricity running costs.
These products are very energy-intensive because they are left on for long periods of time - in some cases, 24 hours a day. That's why ENERGY STAR qualified imaging equipment has active features to minimise energy consumption, both when it's working and not in use.
