AHAM is announcing its partnership with two leading standards organizations, CSA Standards and UL Environment, to develop sustainability standards for home appliances. The purpose of this project is to provide an objective and practical
measurement tool to assist the public in evaluating the sustainability
of home appliances. By creating a scientific foundation for evaluating sustainability, consumers will be able to make more informed purchasing decisions. AHAM hopes that this metric will further consumer confidence in these products.
Five Winds International, an internationally recognized sustainability consulting firm, has been selected as a project manager for this initiative.
