A solid, credible and industry wide acceptable European wide Water Label, which can be viewed by the European Commission as a Voluntary Agreement, is a step closer following the last European Bathroom Forum (EBF) meeting held in Frankfurt.
The EBF welcomed over 30 major manufacturers, national trade bodies and like-minded bodies to the open forum meeting to receive an update on activity and discuss the ‘Best of All’, approach with colleagues from Swedish Energy and ANQIP (The Portuguese body responsible for quality and water efficiency). Both organisations are seeking to uniform their labels together with the Water Label and the Swiss Energy label.
Initial discussions identified a small amount of compromise necessary to bring the schemes together, with the detail being openly discussed with interested parties over the coming months. The enthusiasm by all parties to bring the four schemes together was very visible, with all in the room pledging their support for the ‘Best of All’ initiative.
