Petition EU for more efficient appliances

Avaaz have another petition going around at the moment: it is about getting European decision-makers to adopt more ambitious standards for energy efficiency in major electrical appliances like TVs, fridges and boilers.

Strong rules will reduce the EU's contribution to climate change by driving manufacturers to produce a new-wave of efficient and clean products, while setting a strong benchmark for other producers around the world to follow.

The petition will be delivered to decision makers by global online advocacy group Avaaz.org in a joint event with Friends of the Earth Europe and Natuur en Milieu, on March 12th. Please consider signing before then at: www.avaaz.org/en/refrigerator_revolution/98.php
