Key Messages on Draft Report of Rapporteur TAMBURRANO: A new Energy Labelling Framework

Published:
25 March, 2016
Policies and Issues:
Energy Labelling Directive

Orgalime supports a forward looking, ambitious while workable EU wide framework for the energy efficiency labelling of energy related products in the consumer market segment, which continues building on its key success: simplicity and clarity. Labelling of consumer products makes sense, while for Business-to Business (B2B) products the energy label is not a promising instrument for successful information of professional business partners.

Through the implementation of the existing energy labelling framework coupled with ecodesign measures, our industries are contributing to the realisation of more than 9% of the EU´s 20% energy efficiency target for 2020.

Keeping the administrative burden and costs for both, industry and authorities, to the necessary minimum, and establishing a sufficiently generic and flexible framework that continues taking account of the inherent different product characteristics and efficiency potentials of the various products in scope, are further guarantees that a future framework will deliver results.

Several amendments tabled in the ITRE committee of the European Parliament are indeed taking these critical parameters into account. We call on MEPs to support these amendments as the baseline for the further proceedings on the draft report of Rapporteur Tamburrano (more in download)
