ENERGY STAR is the simple choice for energy efficiency. For nearly 25 years, people across America have looked to EPA's ENERGY STAR program for guidance on how to save energy, save money, and protect the environment. Behind each blue label is a product, building, or home that is independently certified to use less energy and cause fewer of the emissions that contribute to climate change. Today, ENERGY STAR is the most widely recognized symbol for energy efficiency in the world. Since 1992, ENERGY STAR has helped families and businesses save $362 billion on utility bills, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2.4 billion metric tons.
EPA offers many tools and materials to promote energy efficiency. These include:
- The ENERGY STAR marks;
- Public service announcements;
- Promotional and campaign materials;
- Performance rating systems;
- Sales training materials;
- Educational brochures; and
- Awards in recognition of excellence.
More than a mark of energy efficiency, ENERGY STAR is also a symbol of trust, quality, and responsible stewardship of our environment.
