The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Bosch home appliances a 2012 Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award.
Bosch, an Energy Star partner since 2007, will be honored for its long-term commitment to energy efficiency. For instance, 100% of Bosch major appliances are Energy Star-rated and exceed federal energy standards in dishwashers by up to 97%, the company said. Bosch points to its Bosch 800 Plus dishwasher as the most energy- and water-efficient dishwasher in North America.
Bosch will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., on March 15, an event that will mark the 20th anniversary of Energy Star.
“Bosch is committed to partnering with Energy Star in our efforts to increase energy efficiency in its entire line of German-engineered kitchen appliances that includes dishwashers, ranges, cooktops, refrigeration and laundry pairs. We are proud to help protect the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Micaela Shaw, brand manager, Bosch home appliances.
