What would Christmas be without a mention of the Brussels? Greenbang doesn’t like to disappoint, so let’s wade on in there with some news from the European Commission, the world’s favourite executive body and Daily Mail irritant.
The EC has this week adopted a resolution that goes a little like this:
This Regulation requires EU institutions and central Member State government authorities to use energy efficiency criteria no less demanding than those defined in the Energy Star programme when purchasing office equipment.
So that means no more power hungry computers for the good folk of the EC.
From now on, Brussels must be greener than ever before. Which is handy – it’ll make a nice complement to the turkey then.
