Energy rating labels

Energy rating labels help you to find energy efficient office equipment and encourage manufacturers to keep improving their products.

The labels display clear information about a product's energy performance. Each label carries a star rating and an estimate of the products annual energy use, allowing you to quickly compare the energy performance of different models.
