ENERGY STAR is a voluntary labeling program developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that awards and promotes the best energy-efficient buildings, products and practices.
While ENERGY STAR is an American label, it has gained international recognition and is used in several countries around the world. In some cases, countries have adopted ENERGY STAR specifications and criteria as part of their own energy efficiency programs, while others have developed similar labeling programs based on the ENERGY STAR model.
For example, in the United Kingdom, the ENERGY STAR program is managed by the Energy Saving Trust, a non-profit organization that works to promote energy efficiency and sustainable energy use. Many companies in the UK have achieved ENERGY STAR certification for their buildings or products, including Sainsbury's, Tesco, and Marks & Spencer.
Similarly, in France, the ENERGY STAR program is managed by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), and many French companies have achieved ENERGY STAR certification, such as Schneider Electric and Carrefour.
