The European Vending Association (EVA) has adopted an energy consumption label for vending machines. Manufacturers will be able to label the energy consumption class of their equipment in a user-friendly and transparent way. EVA says the measure is a pro-active and voluntary step towards a more environmentally-friendly vending world. “The vending industry is taking a number of positive initiatives towards the protection of the environment, individually and as a community. The new version of the EMP doesn’t just compare machines, but rather ranks them against competitors as more or less energy-efficient,” says Catherine Piana, EVA Director General. “The Protocol will give a customer-friendly and transparent tool for the purpose of selecting the most energy-efficient machine. This, in turn, will foster eco-innovation and give a competitive advantage to the more eco-efficient manufacturers.” The protocol, available upon request on www.vending-europe.eu, is divided into two main sections: the first is the protocol for measurement itself, covering all types of machines; the second creates energy classes for the vending machines, similar to white goods. Manufacturers will follow the procedure described in the document and will send their self-certifications to the EVA.
