Brother’s Energy Star Compliance Program

Brother is an electronics company that is dedicated in protecting the environment. They have different types of environmental programs to ensure that their products, services, and operations create less harmful effects to its surroundings. Among the environmental programs that they have is the Energy Start Compliance program. They follow this standard to guarantee that their products are energy efficient.

Energy Star Compliance

Star Energy is an international standard followed by electronics companies to ensure that their products are energy efficient. When an electronic product carries the Energy Star logo, it means that it is Energy Star compliant and guarantees that it consumes about 20%-30% less energy than required by federal standards.

This program originated in the United States in 1990 by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The program’s goal was to reduce energy use and greenhouse effects caused by power plants. The program worked closely with the IT industry to encourage companies to produce energy efficient products. Such products were then labelled with the Energy Star logo as a way to promote the program and spread awareness. In 1995, the program extended to other products like cooling and heating systems. Today, you can see products like office equipment, office appliances, lighting and many more that carries the Energy Star Logo.

Brother’s Energy Star Compliance

Part of Brother’s promise to help the environment is through its Energy Star Compliance program. The program guarantees that printers, fax machines, and other products are designed to save more energy while providing the same performance.

Electronic products consume energy even when they are turned off. As long as they are plugged in, they are still using energy and it adds up to your energy bill. With Brother’s Energy Star Compliant products, it guarantees that you are using 50% less energy when your machine is plugged in. Brother also included energy saving features on their products like power management options, sleep mode when machine is not in use, runs cooler during operation and lasts longer. With these features, Brother products are guaranteed 25% more efficient.

The Energy Star Compliance program ensures that electronic machines consume less energy. When you purchase products that are certified Energy Star compliant, you conserve energy and save money. If you also want to help the environment, choose electronic products that are Energy Star compliant. And when you are just at home, unplug electronic machines when they are not in use to help save more energy.
