New edition of eco@work online

Welcome to a new edition of Öko-Institut’s e-paper eco@work. This time the “Big Issue” section addresses the question of “Energy efficiency – yes please!

In another article you will discover why the ecodesign directive may set new standards for product design in the 21st century. And you will find the answer to the question: state subsidies for buying energy-saving appliances – do they help tackle climate change or not?
