Commission Decision 2014/202/EU published:
Commission Decision of 20 March 2014 determining the European Union position for a decision of the Management entities under the Agreement between the Government of the United States of America and the European Union on the coordination of energy-efficiency labelling programmes for office equipment on adding specifications for computer servers and uninterruptible power supplies to Annex C to the Agreement and on the revision of specifications for displays and imaging equipment included in Annex C to the Agreement Text with EEA relevance.
The ENERGY STAR label represents a level that any environmentally conscious manufacturer wants to meet.
The EU ENERGY STAR programme follows an Agreement between the European Community (EU) and the Government of the US (PDF) to co-ordinate energy labeling of office equipment. It is managed by the European Commission. US partner is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that started the scheme in the US in 1992 (European Council decision PDF 97kb).
The EU ENERGY STAR database lets you pick the most energy efficient models, within the group of ENERGY STAR qualified office equipment under the newest active specifications.
Please use the products menu to navigate per category of products by using the menu and filters and view relevant products per category and subcategory.
The current lists of all qualified products available in the EU can also be downloaded in CSV file format. Products registered under previous the ENERGY STAR specifications can be found in the Archive section.
Office equipment manufacturers who want to register their ENERGY STAR qualified equipment, as well as large institutional and private business buyers or retailers interested in promoting energy efficient office equipment, can find information on the benefits of becoming an ENERGY STAR Partner here. Only ENERGY STAR programme participants may submit new product data in the database using XLSX files.
