7 Eco-Lables Principles Shall be reliable and verifiable, based on scientifically correct approach and studies Shall not create trading barriers Procedures, methodologies, criteria shall be public All life cycle aspects shall be considered Interested parties shall be involved Innovation shall be supported Administrative procedures for labels awarding shall be restricted to a technical assessment of the compliance with awarding criteria Labels to be applied on products or on packaging to declare environmental performances or specific characteristics of the product Verified by a third party International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

8 EU Energy Labeling Directive 2010/30/EU Directive 2010/30/EU on the indication by labelling and standard product information of the consumption of energy and other resources by energy-related products The Directive covers any good having an impact on energy consumption during use. These products do not consume energy but "have a significant direct or indirect impact" on energy savings. Examples are window glazing and outer doors. The directive is framework but the Commisssion provides regulations for TV ’ s, refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines, etc. International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

9 EU Energy Labeling Show energy efficiency in household appliances, helping the consumer to choose more efficient equipment and save money Contain information related to the use of energy or other resources: e.g. water consumption Energy labels are mandatory for all appliances placed on the EU market and should always be clearly displayed on each appliance at the point of sale International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

10 Eco-Lables International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

11 EU Eco-label The EU Ecolabel helps you identify products and services that have a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material through to production, use and disposal. Recognised throughout Europe, EU Ecolabel is a voluntary label promoting environmental excellence which can be trusted. International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

12 EU Eco-label The EU Ecolabel scheme is a commitment to environmental sustainability. The criteria have been developed and agreed upon by scientists, NGOs and stakeholders to create a credible and reliable way to make environmentally responsible choices. International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

13 EU Eco-label The EU Eco-label is an official label managed by the European Commission which certifies that a product or service is of good environmental quality and guaranteed technical performance An eco-labelled product generates less environmental impacts on air, water, soil and human health Throughout its life cycle, from raw material extraction to end of life (“from cradle to grave”) Added value: usage cost generally lower than average International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

14 EU Eco-label With only a modest 5% market share for EU Eco-labelled products in the European Union, the savings compared to typically performing versions (standard product) would be substantial : Source: « The Direct and Indirect benefits of the Eco-label », AEAT in Confidence, 2004 RESOURCE SAVED /AVOIDED PER YEARAmount saved per year Electricity14,700,000 kWh CO 2 produced from energy use9,318,000 tonnes CO 2 Water use12,285,000 million litres Reduced use of hazardous substances13,800 tonnes Material savings (other than hazardous substances) 530,700 tonnes Reduced discharges to water30,400 tonnes COD Reduced air pollution17,500 tonnes pollutants International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

20 ISO Energy Management Set Criteria for Significance Identify EnPIs International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

21 ISO Energy Management Energy Savings = Baseline Energy Use – Post- retrofit Energy Use ± Adjustments Sourse: Development of Baseline Methodologies in Singapore Adjustment factors: Climate Capacity utilization System efficiency (depreciation, others) Production mix International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

22 ISO Energy Management  For buildings: kWh/m 2, kWhth/m 2 (kWhth/m 3 ),  For hotels: for energy kWh/m 2, kWh/guestnight; for water: m 3 /guestnight (adjusted indicators taking into account that the SPA, swimming pool or restaurant can accept other clients, not only hotel guests, etc.)  For glass industry: kWh/t melted glass (adjustment factor: % cullet in the batch, batch moisture, etc.) International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

23 Energy Benchmarking Energy benchmarking - process of collecting, analysing and relating energy performance data of comparable activities with the purpose of evaluating and comparing performance between or within entities. Entities can include processes, buildings or companies. Benchmarking may be internal between entities within a single organization, or - subject to confidentiality restrictions - external between competing entities Variables: climate data, product mix, technology, load, row materials, etc. International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

24 Voluntary Agreements LTA – Long term agreements Cleaner production Corporate Social Responsibility Others International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

25 Long Term Agreements Voluntary agreements are “essentially a contract between the government and industry, or negotiated targets with commitments and time schedules on the part of all participating parties” (IEA, 1997a). These agreements typically have a long-term outlook, covering a period of five to ten years, so that strategic energy-efficiency investments can be planned and implemented. A key element of voluntary agreements is that they focus the attention of all actors on energy efficiency or emission reduction goals. International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia

26 Long Term Agreements Over 300 Environmental voluntary agreements have been negotiated between national governments and industry in Europe NGO agreement programs –such as PEW’sBusiness Environmental Leadership Council, WWF’sClimate Savers– Government programs focused on individual companies –such as US EPA’s Climate Leaders Focus of this talk is on: –National-level agreement programs –Agreements between industrial companies and/or associations and governments –Agreements that address energy consumption or greenhouse gas emissions International Training, Wizard of the Environment: Enterprise Europe Network, 3-5 October 2012, Sofia
