Whereas the PEP ecopassport offer professionals specific technical data, environmental labelling is used to advise the general public when they purchase products.
To ensure even more transparency, the critical review for environmental labelling methodology was carried out by CODDE Bureau Veritas: the approach complies with the ISO 14 021 European standard’s requirements concerning environmental labels and declarations, and self-declared environmental claims (type II environmental labelling), as well as with the ISO 14 020 European standard concerning environmental labels and declarations, general principles.
Which indicators were selected?
3 indicators were identified as being sufficiently relevant to summarise the environmental impacts of our climate control engineering products: global warming, raw material depletion and water eutrophication.
The results ensuing from each of the above environmental impacts are then ranked on a 5-point scale.
The limits for each scale are set fairly, thus allowing for each product already categorised in the different HVAC-R equipment groups to be ranked, ranging from the least to the most impact on the environment. View our summary table.
