Foster/Gamko video explains eco directive


UK: Foster Refrigerator and its sister brand Gamko has created an animated video to explain the commercial refrigeration Ecodesign Directive and associated energy labelling.

The film shows what the new rating system, which comes into force for many types of commercial refrigeration from July 1, explains how equipment is tested and graded on a scale from A to G according to stringent legislative requirements.

The film is said to have been developed as a direct result of feedback the King’s Lynn based manufacturer received from its customers. Foster learned through conversations in the industry, people were unsure what Ecodesign legislation meant to them. They also found a significant number of dealers did not know the level of responsibility they held in correctly advertising products, be it on the web, in magazines, or at an exhibition.

Nick Bamber head of marketing at Foster and Gamko said: “There is so much information flying around and it’s no wonder people have got lots of questions about Ecodesign. Whether we are talking about Ecodesign, ErP or MEPS, essentially it all boils down to the same thing.”
