How Has Energy Labelling Changed?
For over 25 years, EU energy labels have helped consumers choose energy-efficient appliances. However, standards for the labelling system were revised in March 2021.
Under the previous system, with ratings from A+++ to G, more than 90% of products were labelled A+, A++, or A+++. As a result, energy labelling failed to provide a reliable indicator of how to make a purchasing decision based on its ratings. This has been replaced by a more consumer-centric, practical and intuitive system with standards ranging from a simple A to G.
The change applies to the following categories of LG home appliances: washing machines, washer-dryers, dishwashers, and fridge freezers including wine cellars.
