The European Water Label is a voluntary classification scheme for twelve sanitary product groups. It consists of an online database and product labels offering a clear and uniform indication of the flow rate and volume of water used by sanitary and kitchen products. This is particularly welcome for Duravit: the company’s WCs are in the green area of the EWL scale due to their low water consumption ( 3,5 liter).
As a leading member of the German FSKI (ceramic sanitary industry association), Duravit was involved in the establishment of the European Water Label and participated actively in finding a consensus. An environmentally aware and ecologically committed company, it uses innovative technology to respond to the demand for water-saving products. The new ME by Starck rimless urinal uses only 0.5 litres for flushing while at the same time ensuring rapid and hygienic cleaning of the ceramic surface. The McDry and Architec Dry urinals do without water completely—further examples of Duravit’s approach to sustainability in the bathroom.
“The company’s history has been influenced for decades by an awareness of sustainable thinking and action. We welcome the European Water Label, as its uniform scale makes the low water consumption of our products visible to a wide public. And we go a step further: thanks to the ongoing investments in research and development, we focus on an efficient use of resources in the design and manufacture of our products,” explains Frank Richter, CEO Duravit AG.
The European Water Label was launched in 2006 by members of the British Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA). Through partnerships with leading European organisations like the European Association for the Taps and Valves Industry (CEIR) and the Spanish Association of Ceramic Sanitary Ware Manufacturers (ANFACESA), it was transformed into an independent non-profit organisation and is now a voluntary system covering a wide variety of sanitary supply sectors in Europe.
The EWL database currently contains 7,350 products from thirty-four countries. Manufacturers can adapt it to their individual product ranges. New criteria for WC suites and pans (EN 997) and WC flushing cisterns (EN 14055) have been introduced to incorporate class 1 and 2 norms.
