The energy star Initiative is a voluntary partnership between the Government of Canada and industry to make high efficiency products readily available and visible to Canadians. NRCan formally enrolls manufacturers, retailers and other organizations as Participants in the energy star Initiative. Participants help promote energy star and ensure energy star qualified products are prominent and readily available in the marketplace and to Canadian consumers.
Partnering with the United States
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) administers and monitors use of the energy star name and symbol in Canada under an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Canada became an international partner in the program in 2001. NRCan works closely with the EPA to develop energy star technical specifications for products. It also develops Canadian specifications for certain energy star qualified products.
