Dear partners and friends,

We're very pleased to share CLASP’s first Annual Report with you! 

2012 marked many milestones and successes for CLASP and the appliance energy efficiency community.

Energy Tiger - China's consumer awareness campaign for energy labelIn June of last year, CLASP and the Energy Foundation’s China Sustainable Energy Program collaborated with China National Institute of Standardization to launch a public awareness campaign of China’s energy label.  Posters displaying the message ‘Beat the Energy Tiger at Home’ were posted in 10 Beijing subway stations, with an estimated 47 million passenger views.

In partnership with the SEAD Initiative, we also launched the first Global Efficiency Medal competition, recognizing the most energy efficient flat-panel TVs in the world.  The SEAD Global Efficiency Medal spurs innovations among manufacturers for the most energy consuming products, and gets these top-performing, super-efficient appliances to early adopting consumers.

Read more stories like this in our Annual Report, produced in collaboration with Paula Owen Consulting and Zuma.  

Many thanks to CLASP’s generous donors and implementing partners for making this work possible and successful.

Kind regards,

Christine Egan
Executive Director & CEO
