ECO LABEL for Electronics

Green electronics and machinery are designed to progressively minimize energy use and have less impact on the environment. This doesn't just mean that their electricity use is less, gTruly green electronics use less energy than traditional methods and even contain materials that use renewable and natural raw materials whenever possible and use them in their manufacturing processes.

ECO LABEL for Electronics

ECO LABEL for Computers and Keyboards

Today, computer use is a part of our daily life, both in private and professional life: The vast majority of workplaces are equipped with a computer. This makes it all the more important that computers and keyboards meet all the demands of modern office work, are environmentally friendly and have no negative impact on users' health.

The manufacture of computers, laptops and keyboards not only requires large amounts of energy, but also requires abundant resources, whose production is associated with significant environmental impacts. Resources are often very scarce materials such as rare earths, gold, indium, cobalt or tantalum. They are essential to modern technologies but their usability is not guaranteed. From a resource-efficient economy perspective, the goal is to allow the long-term use of computers to get the greatest possible benefit from once-used resources. ECO LABEL certified computers meet this requirement, for example, because they are repairable and upgradeable.

In addition, ECO LABEL certified computers and keyboards meet stringent requirements for recyclable design and material selection, thereby creating favorable framework conditions to efficiently recover used materials and help conserve natural resources.

In order to protect the health of the users, the plastic parts of the devices are made especially from low emission materials.

ECO LABEL for Long Life and Energy Efficient Lamps

High-quality energy-efficient home lamps, compact fluorescent lamps - also popularly referred to as "energy-saving light bulbs" - and LED lamps use much less electricity than incandescent lamps to produce the same light. Thus, they help reduce the home lighting bill: up to 80 percent at best. However, not all energy-saving lamps are equally good. ECO LABEL certified lamps are high quality products that offer many benefits to the environment.

ECO LABEL for Energy Efficient Buyers

Set-top boxes are devices designed to receive digital, encrypted and / or encrypted television signals. Often known as "buyers". Set-top boxes expand the functionality of televisions by making additional multimedia content available. For example, a set-top box can allow users to access online and offline video libraries, receive television programs via streaming video, or browse the Internet. Early replacement of a television set that does not have these additional functionalities can thus be avoided by the additional use of a set-top box.

The set-top boxes, awarded with the environmental label, consume significantly less energy compared to other standard devices on the market. Plastic parts in these devices, which are awarded with an environmental label, use materials with low pollutant rate.

ECO LABEL for air conditioners

Air conditioners are designed to control the thermal comfort of living and working rooms and are especially used in countries with regularly high outdoor temperatures. However, the use of air conditioning is expected to increase in line with the more frequent hot weather. If it is not possible to avoid the use of air conditioners with construction measures, environmentally friendly and energy efficient air conditioners can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, primarily due to the use of natural refrigerants and increased efficiency of the devices. In addition, the requirements set by the environmental label should enable air conditioning suppliers to provide more professional quality service.

ECO LABEL for Energy Saving Toasters

Despite using only a few minutes each day, the high power consumption of a regularly and heavily used device provides an annual power consumption of almost 50kWh (8 slices per day). In addition to power consumption, other important issues in protecting consumer health are pollutant emissions, for example formaldehyde emissions. There are also safety aspects that play an important role during the lifetime of a toaster: Some models can become extremely hot on the exterior and therefore present a burn hazard for users. Also, there are security risks when slices of bread are attached to the appliance.

Basic Criteria for the award of the eco-label ensure that the power consumption of ECO LABEL certified products is low. In addition, ECO LABEL certified toasters have low pollutant and emission levels, meet stringent safety requirements and have great ease of use.

ECO LABEL for Coffee Machines

People love to drink coffee and drink a lot. Apart from the classic filter coffee, espresso machines and bezels are gaining in popularity. Unlike traditional coffee making, the advantage of modern automatic coffee machines - from an environmental point of view - is the fact that they only brew as much coffee as they are actually needed. This helps save both energy and coffee. However, a fact that many consumers do not know is that most of these single-serving coffee machines have a high power consumption, for example, because they need continuous water heating.

Environmentally Friendly Energy Meters

Unnecessary standby power consumption of home appliances can add up to 400 kWh per year and at home. This has a negative impact not only on the environment but also on the economy. Good energy meters help identify hidden devices that consume electricity. The devices should provide as accurate power consumption data as possible and be safe. If so, the consumer would be able to take additional power saving measures, such as using switchable power strips or replacing heavy power consuming devices with more efficient ones.

In addition to the examples above, you can join the ECO LABEL program in order not to harm the environment or reduce the damage to the lowest possible level in the production and recycling of dozens of electronic goods, and you can help protect the ecological balance by obtaining your certificate for your related electronic products.
