According to the Energy Saving Trust (EST), the average household could save £250 a year by being more energy efficient – the equivalent to saving 1.5 tonnes of C02. Reduced power consumption in consumer electronics is just one way that can help consumers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

A series of national and international ‘eco-labels’ can be awarded to particular UK products and brands to help the consumer in their buying decision. Eco-labels, awarded by independent bodies, confirm that a product meets strict environmental performance criteria and has very low impact on the environment.

Products have been awarded eco-labels for energy saving and/or advanced environmental performance.
