AMDEA introduces new energy labelling toolkit
All the trade needs to know from A-to-G…
Trade association AMDEA has created an easy-to-use online toolkit for appliance manufacturers, distributors and retailers to ensure they are customer-ready for 1st March 2021 when new energy labelling will replace the old labels on shopfloor and online displays.
The new energy rating affects dishwashers, washing machines, washer dryers, fridges and freezers and wine storage. These products will be rated simply from A to G, doing away with the current ‘plus’ system, making it easier for customers to compare products and allowing the industry space to develop eco-performance.
The online toolkit is a visual guide designed to bring retailers up to speed with the changes.
It explains that vast improvements in energy efficiency have driven the need to rescale the labels. The information pack offers easy access to the background, a timeline of what needs to be done and when, a gallery of the new labels defining their key features, FAQs to prepare the industry for answering customer questions and an infographic highlighting the industry’s eco-achievements over the last decade.
A 3-minute training video offers retailers another quick way to brush up on all they need to know about the new labelling.
