The US Environmental Protection Agency developed the Energy Star program to identify and promote energy-efficient products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Since its inception in the U.S. in 1992, the Energy Star logo is now recognized in many countries and covers a wide range of products including office equipment, TVs and white goods.
Many Samsung Electronics products are Energy Star certified. For details of newly certified products and model lists, visit www.energystar.gov(U.S.) or www.eu-energystar.org (EU: office products only).
In addition, the vast majority of Samsung Electronics' TVs, monitors, mobile phones, notebook PCs and printers sold globally meet the latest U.S. EPA Energy Star criteria:
EU Energy Label for Domestic Appliances
Anyone buying a washing machine or fridge will have seen the EU Energy Label on products in stores, with its distinctive A(++) to G rating. Energy Efficiency Grade ~ from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)
This label is required by law and is designed to tell you about the energy efficiency of the product compared to others on the European market. It also provides other useful information. For example, for washing machines, the label tells you about the water consumption, washing and spin-drying performance.
