EcoDesign by 2021
8 months ago
We've often been pushing for better technology and approaches in our industry, and not just by providing top notch service. We were selling high efficiency wood boiler stoves that could go on pressurised systems years ahead, we have thermal stores that we designed ourselves to make them better suited to renewables, we have solutions for stoves in airtight and passiv haus homes, the list goes on.....
Now I'd like to announce that by 2021 we will only be selling EcoDesign compliant stoves and boilers - a full year ahead of schedule. EcoDesign sets strict limits on emissions and minimum efficiency and is due to come into force in the UK (and across the EU) in 2022. We've been phasing out our stock of non-EcoDesign models for a while now, and working on making sure our own brands comply with the new legislation - in fact many of our own stoves do far better. From 2021 we will no longer be supplying non-compliant stoves apart from any last remaining stock we have which should be very minimal.
You can look for the "ECO" emblem over the pictures of stoves on this website which tells you that it is complies with EcoDesign. We'll be working on making this more prominent on the site over the next few months. This is all part of a drive to be more responsible and sustainable as a business, and to help drive further improvement.See all Sune Nightingale's blog posts
