Sust-it GreenPlug Awards — the 'Best-in-class' energy label!

Sust-it was the 1st website in the UK to rank products by their energy efficiency and CO2 emissions. It has now become the No. 1 website to find the most energy efficient products, from fridges to cars!

Our GreenPlug Awards are only given to products that have topped, or have appeared in our Top 10 energy efficiency charts. Unlike other energy-labelling schemes we highlight only the best-in-class products. Sust-it's independent endorsement will bring real green accreditation to any brand. Sust-it GreenPlug Awards can be used in PR, marketing and promotional material, in any media format!


Q: What are Sust-it GreenPlug Awards?

Sust-it only gives GreenPlug Awards to promote energy efficient products that achieve the highest rankings within our efficiency charts, in any given category. Each product must have reached No. 1 or entered the Top 10 and maintained its position for a minimum of 30 consecutive days.

Q: How can I use the Sust-it GreenPlug Award symbols?

Our award package is very simple - you can use it in any promotional material, as long as the Sust-it GreenPlug Award branding guidelines are followed and the relevant fee has been paid.
