Water efficiency is fast becoming a key policy issue and refers to the conservation of essential water resources, and achieving less water use in tandem with sustained appliance performance.
While securing supply is a mainstay of the water efficiency objective, water use also results in the emission of carbon, constituting an environmental threat. As such, regulations are emerging to address the technological performance of household devices with regard to water, and the implementation of voluntary labeling schemes for water-using electrical appliances.
In some regions, mandatory water efficiency labeling programs, such as Singapore WELS, have now been instituted for certain home appliances.
Water efficiency regulations commonly include requirements for marking/labeling, registration, permits/licenses/approvals, providing product information, and payment of taxes, fees and duties.
The main product categories covered in C2P are:
- Washing machines
- Steam cookers
- Electric showers
