The Label 2020 project is organised to help in the smooth market transition towards the new energy labels. The Label 2020 project has started in June 2019 and will last until January 2023. It is coordinated by the Austrian Energy Agency and takes place in 16 EU member states.
The EU energy label for products has been a key driver supporting innovation and market development for energy efficient product technologies for more than 20 years. The label stimulated both innovation by manufacturers and demand for energy efficient products by consumers and professional buyers.
Label 2020 project objectives are to support:
- consumers and professional buyers by means of effective information campaigns, services and tools.
- retailers in the correct, efficient and effective implementation of the new label at the point of sale and in online sales channels.
- manufacturers in the provision of correct labelling and product information
- policy makers, multipliers and other stakeholders in the use and promotion of the new label within national programs, initiatives and schemes.
