We have been focusing on increasing the energy efficiency of our products along with other environmental improvements since 1994. We’ve steadily reduced energy consumption of many products in our portfolio.
Our EcoDesign standards drive improvements in six Green Focal Areas, including energy efficiency. Plus, Philips Green products meet other relevant and well-known environmental product requirements.
While the Philips battery chargers are not sold in the United States, we are applying the US EPA’s Energy Star technical requirements for this product category to our portfolio to enhance the energy efficiency of our batter chargers.
10% of our current battery chargers models, indicated on the list that can be downloaded below, fulfill those requirements. These models exceed the technical Energy Star requirements by 5-15%. As these models are not sold in the United States, we have not applied for registration in the Energy Star database and partner program.
