Energy Star Certification Mark

Last week I learned that my office building is a green building that has received the EPA’s Energy Star certification.  Further investigation revealed that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency owns a certification mark registration for its Energy Star design. energy-star-reg.JPG The Energy Star program seeks to aid investment in energy efficient products by providing information that consumers and investors can use to research and compare green product or project choices.  The EPA works together with the U.S. Department of Energy and manufacturers to award the Energy Star certification to products that meet particular energy savings standards.  This is an example of the type of green certification mark alluded to in my previous post that benefits consumers because of its objective, non-commercial goals.
