Indesit Company washing machines the best in Europe in terms of energy labelling and Ecodesign compliance
Under the European Commission co-funded ATLETE II project, only Indesit and Miele models were judged compliant without need of corrective action.
Rome, … July 2014 – The European ATLETE II project for the first time this year tested the best selling washing machines in Europe for compliance with legal requirements in terms of energy labelling and Ecodesign. The results of the analysis conducted on a representative panel of products were presented at the Rome offices of Enea on 4 July and showed that only Indesit Company washing machines, together with Miele’s, were immediately compliant with all the control parameters and therefore needed none of the corrective measures required of the other manufacturers.
This recognition of Indesit Company’s products – in both the Indesit and Hotpoint-Ariston lines – enriches its leadership in the washing sector in Europe.
Promoted by ISIS (Istituto di Studi per l’Integrazione dei Sistemi), CECED (European Committee of Domestic Equipment Manufacturers) and ENEA, among others, and co-funded by the European Commission, the compliance verification project studied both technical parameters and the correctness of values stated on labels and of the information in instruction booklets or otherwise provided to consumers. The project’s purpose is to give concrete support to market surveillance authorities and help reducing domestic consumption levels. Such pan-European testing is in fact intended to ensure that energy savings made possible by the improved energy efficiency of products are actually achieved, that consumers are safeguarded against low quality products and that there is a correct competition between players in the market.

This important achievement by Indesit Company reflects its commitment to improving energy performance and communicating transparently with consumers so that they can make informed choices in terms of both value for money and environmental responsibility.
