C.2: Eco-label scheme

06 Oct, 2022    |   by RBMP Life   |   

This Action foresees the development of a voluntary water labelling strategy aimed at promoting water efficient devices and appliances so as to empower consumers with verifiable information. It has been established that around 40% of the current demand in Europe can be reduced through water saving initiatives and improved efficiency. The proposed water rating label (to be designed similar to the existing Energy label in Malta), entails designated water-using products to have clearly displayed, at the point of sale a label demonstrating the water efficiency standard and information about the volume of water used. The water rating label would allow consumers to compare products in order to be able to make the correct choice; thus, rewarding manufacturers and retailers who manufacture and stock water efficient models/devices.
